A great photo requires the right perspective. There’s a recipe for a good picture, and certain ingredients are found in every great image (regardless of camera quality or subject matter). Indeed, an interesting subject alone is not enough to make a great photo; perspective is the key ingredient for a stunning image. This past week, I had several opportunities to capture images of the Great Blue Heron in Dauphin Island, Alabama. And the experience was a great reminder that perspective and viewing angle make a huge difference in the final image. My experimentation with perspective has been a huge part of my Journey In Photos.
