More and more often I’m noticing that I’m not choosing the obvious “Oh look! A pretty tree” shots. I’m trying to get the weird abstract stuff lately. I like it, and I really feel like I’m going to keep doing that. I’m actually trying to figure out whether I’m just bored of the tree shaped trees, or perhaps I’m forcing myself to pick images that I think people will question a little it. Like why I chose this one.
I picked this one today because of how balanced it all is. There’s branches in the foreground, there’s branches in the background, and some in focus. They fill the entire image. Also, there’s a bird in there somewhere as that’s what I was originally trying to shoot, but he was just too far away. That didn’t work out very well.
I had to take a second look at this photo to realize that it’s all about balance. I decided it was a keeper 🙂
