Developing Your Eye II, Day Three: “Scale”

My submission for the theme of “Scale” is a portrait of my mother at her recent birthday in June, 2016. I was scratching my head to find a suitable photograph for the subject of scale. Finally I decided this portrait shall be suffice as there are three sizes of my mother in this shot. The tiny figurine of my mother on the cake, the medium size of her dressed in red, in the video behind her large version of the actual her. Hope you all like the photograph.

Today, play with scale: use anything and everything — from your Chihuahua to your Mini Cooper — to convey size in your image.

Today’s Tip: Don’t just point and shoot. Observe your scene before pressing the shutter and consider how all the elements in the frame interact with one another. Make an object appear larger through a ground-level POV. Place two things side by side in an unexpected way.
