Paula’s black and white Sunday this week is all about Composition. The way we consider a subject before pressing the shutter is very important.
“the art of arranging all the elements in your frame in an aesthetically pleasing way”
This is an India Ink version of a photograph of my eldest grandson just about to jump down from a granite stone gate post. I have used the ‘rules of thirds‘ to position the figure on the lower left-hand side of the image so that he is seen to be jumping into space. I like how I managed to capture him with his legs bent freezing the moment he is about to leap. I also like the spires of the foxgloves piercing the blank sky. I don’t particularly like the way the cloud on the left appears using this effect, but I have left it in because on reflection it rather looks as though a swarm of midges is heading his way and he is trying to out run them!
