Don’t know why, I find myself spending a good amount of time pondering on photos lately. It’s like that I have, somehow, acquired a bad habit or decease. I couldn’t stop…
Portrait or Landscape
Portrait or landscape orientation shouldn’t be a hard decision. When I first arrived at this place (thanks to our wonderful tour guide Mr. Lo for showing us this spot!), I had no doubt that landscape was the way to go (I wanted lots of hills and clouds!) Immediately, I took 10 photos in landscape orientation. It was at the last minute, not knowing what else I could do, I took one in portrait orientation. And that turned out to be my favorite. I am stunned.
The calm feeling of that vertical photo seduces me.
Next… Portrait orientation came to my mind first in this case. It is a long hallway after all. But it turned out that landscape one gives me something that the other one doesn’t. I sense more determination/power in it (comparing to more peaceful and calm feeling on the other).
(I just realize that the size of the photo would make some difference too. Oh well… continue pondering…)
Big or Small Leaf
Our tour guide Mr. Lo, apparently has a lot of experiences in photographing. He placed a maple leaf on the hood of a black car… there came my next pondering: would leaf alone create a good picture? How much of the “black” space I need to satisfy me?
I seem to like the original one a little more than the second one.
