power station on a cold spring morning.
HI, could you leave me any tips you may have on improving my photography please. Only had this camera a month and its a big step up from the compact.
The image is too central , square on and masked by the mid ground. The eye is not lead into the image as there is no clear point of interest. Sorry..but its a boring image.
Could I suggest the the OU photographic course :http://www3.open.ac.uk/courses/bin/p12.dll?C01T189
Its a good starting point and you get as much out as you put in...
Wish you all the best. David
That's good feedback that David has given.
I agree with him. To improve with your photography, you have to think about your composition. Here, the main subject is very central and you have a lot of dead space in the foreground with absolutely no interest. You need to think about composing your photographs by imagining where a noughts and crosses board would be in the view finder. This way, you ought to have points of interest ona 'third'. Here you could have found some foreground interest, a rock or log etc, and focussed on that about a third into the frame. You could then have the power station on the top third thus allowing the eye to move around the image.
Also, try not to have the horizon running right through the middle of the frame. Use the third rule again. Top third, or bottom third.
Have a look athe best landscape photos on this site and you'll see that in the main the horizon is on the third.
Hope this helps.
I've done lots of power station photos - check them out in my portfolio and see if you can get any ideas from them
