Use powers of observation to capture the more unusual
The Northumberland Camera Club is filled with super shots from both experienced and novice photographers alike.
It’s our club’s remit to celebrate photography taken by folk at every level of skill, and I love it when people experiment with different types of photography.
I like a good landscape as much as the next person, but someone’s observation of snow or ice formations, or the light shining through plants, or the patterns formed by lichen, or the shape of architectural features, or even capturing the Alnwick Lion through the ‘O’ of a Barter Books sign, is just wonderful.
One thing that makes great photography is that power of observation.
Seeing things that people don’t usually notice and placing the camera where the human eye rarely goes helps to make a picture compelling.
I think that is more important than technical ability.
Spot the unusual and capture it.
Everyone is welcome to join the Northumberland Camera Club.
