Day Four: “Natural World” — Leading Lines
Today I was tasked with capturing the natural world: snap a moment outside, big or small. From a close-up of a leaf in your backyard to a panorama from your morning hike, we invite you to document this wondrous world around us.
Now at first glance (thought) this seems a very easy project to go out and do, especially when you are living in Spain with its generally rolling sunshine, and people with a sunny disposition.
The problem is the heat – a lot of what you might target for photographs, when considered closely do not give you that oomph that would be expected.
However I persevered and came up with these shots:
However after consideration when I got back from my safari, I decided that the following photograph reflected the qualities of the assignment – showing natural lines that lead you to different parts of the frame. The photograph was taken on a Samsung mobile phone with 8 megapixels camera, which rendered a photograph with just over 3Mb, which I have now resized to 2Mb – hopefully without loss of clarity to the brief. No flash was used, just the shadow and natural sunlight, which I feel makes for a wonderful atmospheric photograph
