The great thing about photography is that it teaches us to see things in ways that most people don’t.
I’ve said before that I do like photography that is a little bit different.
As much as I appreciate a well composed and properly developed shot of a glorious sunset, for me a photo becomes compelling when it shows the world differently.
My selection this week is about just that. They all communicate what the photographers wanted to say, using specific techniques to achieve their results.
All the photographers have made the effort to be somewhere at a certain time and used particular techniques that make their images stand out.
Whether it be using a selective focus lens, looking for abstract patterns, choosing a low camera position, taking a long exposure, using an infrared sensor, placing the camera where the eye would not usually be or just waiting for the perfect moment for someone to walk into the frame, they are all captivating.
If you haven’t done so already, come and join Northumberland Camera Club on Facebook and share your photos with us.
It would be great to see your work. It is a friendly group, open to people of all abilities.
Post images to http://bit.ly/PicNland and tag them #PicNorthumberland, giving some backgroundto them.
