Animals & pets are always popular amongst photographers. As with any other subject, the question is, how can we capture them differently, in an out-of-the-box approach. Getting down to eye level, using odd angles, B&W, extreme lighting, even multi-exposures for impressionistic effects – are some ways off achiving that. The willingness to experiment and to make mistakes is the start for creativity. And, off course, seeing the elements – how the dog’s body, legs and tail, as well as the silhuetted cat’s ear’s and whiskers, create diagonals. How, through cropping, the wings and body of the gull devide the frame into segments, determinating positive and negative space. The reflection illuminates not just the eye, but also the viewer, pointing the camera in two directions. Overexposure of the gull’s head shot eliminates all clutter, almost creating a pencil drawing… your choices, your decisions, your expression, your creation… your ‘Photo-Graph’.
