Weekly Photo Challenge: One Shot, Two Ways

One Shot, Two Ways. This week, photographer Jeff Sinon talked about his process of finding the best shot. Before taking a picture, he studies his scene — looking at a shot horizontally (as a landscape) and vertically (as a portrait). With this honed, critical eye, he decides what orientation works best for his photograph.

I know the challenge is to go out and take one shot two ways, but Jeff also mentioned converting the shot at the editing stage. This shot was taken in the landscape orientation and converted to a portrait at the editing stage so I could have one shot, two ways.

Sometimes whist travelling, there is no time to wait for the right light and the best you can do is to make the most of what light is available. This photograph of Herbert Lake was taken around 11:00am and whilst the light is not overly bright, it’s not soft either. All in all, it gave me a good representation of the Lake.

When I have no time restrictions, I normally wait – sometimes for several hours for the right light.

These ones below is one of those occasions where I waited until the light and sun was ‘just right’ and then went hell for leather! 🙂

About Retired2Travel

My passion has been for many, many years landscape photography so when the chance came up to retire early, in order to travel, I took it! It made sense then to marry the two (travel and photography) and create this blog. I hope you enjoy it :)
