This past week on one of my favorite scrapping websites, I participated in a challenge that was all about creating a layout about something that we are good at. I decided to do mine about photography. Not because I'm a good photographer... I consider myself slightly above average. But what I do think I'm good at is taking lots of photos, composing them well, and finding interesting things to photograph. I guess what I'm good at is having a good eye for photography. My technical skills are so-so... I rarely venture away from the auto settings on my camera. My son says he thinks I could be a professional photographer if I wanted, but really, I don't want to. I'm happy just noodling away, snapping pictures willy-nilly, and hoping for a few good ones. Here are a few slightly better than average ones.
After I got this layout done, I realized that the perspective bothered me... the camera was a 3/4 view, yet the little photo lenses were straight-on views. So I thought I'd try it in perspective to see if I liked it better. What do you think? Which one do you prefer? (I love digital... I can make a major change like this, and decide which one I like best without destroying the original!)
