it’s all about geometry

Photography 101: Edge – Today is all about straight edges, and tweaking your image to ensure your lines are perfectly positioned.

The Weekly Photo Challenge: Converge – Photos are visual spaces where shapes and lines, objects, and people come together

I was going to discard this over-exposed photo that I took last weekend of a girl in a red scarf walking along the railway tracks. However, after a little editing the image developed a certain edginess that had a mesmerizing quality to it.  I hope you agree.

I originally posted this for Photography 101 two days ago but with Ben’s Weekly Photo Challenge today asking us to “explore the ways lines and shapes can converge in interesting ways through photography” I have updated the post for Ben’s challenge as it seems to be the perfect fit, particularly as I had originally thought of giving it the title “The Vanishing Point Vanishes”.

  1. I absolutely love this one Andrew! You have the most artistic eye and I’m guessing you could paint this one into something amazing. Sometimes the mistakes make the best shots if we open our eyes to see what’s possible. Beautifully done!

    1. Thanks for making my day with such a lovely and generous comment Tina. Coming from someone whose work I love, as you know, makes it very special. Yes, it always amazes me how the best shots are never planned and I suppose the lesson is never to discard an image until you’re really sure it’s not worthy. It’s a great subject for a post, which I am working on, as I think it ties in with the French Impressionists and the Salon des Refusés where paintings that were considered “not worthy” became some of our greatest masterpieces. Oops, looks like I’ve started writing the post already! Best wishes Tina and thanks again. Have a great week…Andrew 🙂
