Having just returned from New Zealand with a batch of photos, it is interesting to see what drew my eye and how that fed into the different perspectives.
With all the mountainous and rock face views the landscape had to offer, my eye was inevitably drawn up
but standing within a bamboo grove or under a tree fern also captures the attention
I try to remember to look beneath the feet – and shooting down on a subject produces a strong image and interesting geometric patterns and shapes in the details
This is something I rarely do as I never seem to get the angle right nor the focus but it can have impact
The times I regret my age and lack of agility is when I want to shoot something from a low perspective. The best I can do is half bend but sometimes the subject is on elevated ground which give a faux impression of a low viewpoint
