Most of us have no trouble seeing, in the traditional sense, glasses or no glasses, as we drive down the street, we might see buildings, people, school buses, traffic lights, shopping malls, mountains, beaches and schools to name just a few of the ‘nouns’ we are quick to notice, but it has been my experience that if you want to expand your vision you need to start looking for opportunities to photograph ADJECTIVE’S too, and not just nouns!
Case in point, I’m in a small park in Paris, my student see’s a flower, an orange poppy, and proceeds to photograph it. “What do you think”, he asks, as he offers me a look at his camera’s display, “It looks like an orange poppy”, I reply, and then proceed to suggest that he consider finding a way to shoot the ORANGE poppy and the GREEN grass/foliage. It was clear he was confused, and it was then that I noticed a nearby pigeon feather on the ground. “What should we expect to see if I photograph a close-up of this feather while holding it about one meter away from the ORANGE poppies and surrounding GREEN foliage?”(IMAGE #2 )...and just like that, a composition is created of the SOFT, CURVILINEAR lines of the WHITE, GREY and BLACK colors of the feather against the backdrop of GREEN (out of focus foliage) and, following subtle shifts in my point of view, the feather is now framed effectively against the VIVID ORANGE out of focus poppies in the background. (Image #1 )
At your next photo outing, consider composing adjectives as your primary goal, with the noun playing a secondary role. Nikon D500, Nikkor 18-300mm, F/7.1 @1 /400 sec, 100ISO
