Detail To Tell A Story
Photography is a great avenue to express yourself and to tell stories through the camera. Through the lens you determine what the people see and you are also giving them to opportunity to view things from a perspective that they may have not done before. That’s powerful.Taking the camera into your hand, you are the creative person behind the camera and it is your story that you are telling.

In this blog I want to encourage you to get out your camera, maybe your macro lens if you have one and to begin to tell a story through your pictures.If you don’t have a macro lens, chose another lens, maybe a telephone lens, zoom lens where you can just take part of your subject. Taking just part of the subject is the key here in telling your story through the detailed shots.
Taking detailed shots is a way that you get your friends to guess what the subject is by revealing a few pictures at a time. The last picture reveals the subject.The reason that I suggest this as it also teaches you to look beyond the obvious to take a part of the subject that even excites you. It gives you a chance to explore with your camera and to think creatively.
At the end of this blog you will clearly see the subject but if I was with someone I would reveal bits and pieces to see if they could guess the subject.
By setting yourself this task, it will enable you to grow in your photography and it will also teach you to look at your subjects in a different light. The best way to grow in your love for photography is to simply pick up the camera and start clicking away.
The way that we all grow in photography is to get out there and set yourself little tasks to do. In the end you will be richer for it and you will notice your photography grow and grow and you will see things totally differently and it will also help you to rarely have a photography block.
This small task you can do anywhere. There might be something at home you can choose, or in the garden or as you go for a hike or walk, there will be something that you’ll come across that you can use as your subject.
if you have the time and want nice and sharp images, make sure you use a tripod. I know many don’t like using a tripod as it is time consuming . The big advantage of using a tripod it enables you to step back, look at your subject without a camera in your hand and actually see what you are looking at and helping the thinking process.
When our hands are free of the camera and the camera is on the tripod you’ll be surprised how that will help you in your creativity on the subject that you are photographing.
The end picture is revealed and for those who know me, know that I just love FJ Holdens and this is an awesome rustic FJ Holden.
The above was a gift to me, from two lovely people whom I have never met, who had no agenda and who remain special friends.They come into the category of a rare human beings ,who have displayed all the qualities that we all should strive for but fail. Failing I include myself in that. These two people, know who they are and although I have never met them, they are remarkable people whom I will always cherish to the rest of my days.:)
