Don't Stand Too Far Away

This is the fourth of a week long series on my take on photography. Go to Monday's posting to see the series from the beginning.

Don't Stand Too Far Away

Actually, I say stand too far away or too close... or too low or too high. The demon
of creativity is often the eye level shot and the 'just right' distant shot. Break the
plane of your own eye level, of the model/photographer comfort zone and the resulting
'well composed' but boring shot. If you are worrying about what someone will think,
the model or an onlooker or whoever, then go back to your house and sell your camera
because you are only going to create something that looks like someone elses work,
since you are allowing someone else to decide what you do while in the act of creating
an image.
