Developing Your Eye, Day Two: “Street”

This is my submission for “Street” in Day Two of Developing Your Eye. I did not take a wide-angled photograph as our roads in the Heritage Enclave are mainly narrow ie just a two-laned tarred roads. Instead of taking the normal landscape shot, I took a portrait one instead. Wide or narrow became a subjective matter of the opinion in the eyes of the viewers. Is the road wide or narrow in this photograph?

Day Two: “Street” — Establishing Shot

Yesterday, we asked you to interpret home in your own way. Today, let’s focus on a street. It can be a quiet road blanketed in snow, an alley covered with murals, or a busy avenue where pedestrians weave between cars and motorbikes, like this scene from Hanoi, Vietnam:

Wander your neighborhood — or someplace new — to capture your street snapshot.

Today’s Tip: While you’re free to take a picture from any angle, try to capture an establishing shot: a wide-angle photo that sets up a scene. You may need to back up a few steps, or climb some stairs to higher ground to fit the whole scene in one shot.

Visit the resource page for details on taking a wide shot. Remember to tag your post with #developingyoureye and check the Reader to see posts from fellow course participants!
