Photography Tip: Look Up And Down Not Just In Front Of You

One difference between real photographers and people who just happen to own a camera is that people who care about photography are much more likely to be aware of the world around them, regularly looking up and down, as well as around them at eye level.

This awareness can often result in great photo opportunities whether it’s moody storm clouds reflected in a giant carpark puddle at your feet or beautiful birds living in a corner of a roof far above your head.

  1. That is interesting that you pointed out that awareness is an important aspect to photography. I never thought about it that way. It seems like that being in the present moment will have a benefit on my photos. I have just read the “Power of Now” I didn’t know this would translate.

  2. I stumbled on your website because of the title and was pleasantly surprised by the awesome photos. I really enjoyed the stormy weather pics and your use of perspective. Hope you don’t mind – I’m going to make your first photo with the highway lines my new wallpaper.

    Thanks!

    EDITOR: glad you liked the photo that much 🙂
