Shapes in Photography
I use a macro lens a lot (those close-ups), as I just love how it makes me look at the world in a different way. I see things that I would never see, and it makes me look for interesting patterns and designs in minute details.
I was staying at someone’s house earlier this year, and I took out my macro lens and went around taking photos. I took photos of anything that caught my eye, an old doll, a bell, tiny statues, the flowers, little keepsakes. Anything that I thought might make an interesting photo.
The photo below is one of my favorites. To be perfectly honest, I have no idea what is in this photo. What it was part of. No idea. 🙂 I just know that I love the shapes, those curves and the lines, and the out of focus background, that is lit and gives the photo depth. And how the light and shadow plays along the curves of the metal. I do kind of wish I had backed up just a bit, and had a bit more room at the top of the photo on the left, and maybe I should Photoshop that blue out of the lower right. But still, I just find this photo interesting to look at and it pleases my eye.
Thoughts? Do you like this type of photo?
