The Blog of an Alevel Photography Student Part 5
Today i was flicking back through past photographs, thinking about what i could do if i got different types of topics for my exam paper. (which i get feb 1st). Last years paper had things on it like icon, and words rather than set normal topics like landscape. I found this image i took a few years back using my trusty Nikon D70 - brilliant beginners camera.
I titled it Beast Beneath the Ice
I can remember the day i took this, it was around -1 and my camera battery kept playing up. I went down a farm track close to where i live, and saw this massive long frozen puddle and the rest of the ground had what seemed like a covering on frost, but it was just light snow. I loved how it was quite a dull day and the fact there is one simple tree helps the fact it doesn't draw too much attention away from the other elements of the photograph. It also could use the rules of thirds if you used one line running horizontally underneath the base of the tree, as we follow that line it would lead us to what i would class as the start of the iced puddle, creating an effect that makes us the viewer look all around.
Anyway though i might as well give you some back ground knowledge to one of my photographs.
