Just a few photos that caught out eye.
Recently, guest photo challenge host Shane Francescut asked us to photograph a subject from several different angles and share the results. Here’s a sample of the images we loved in response to “From Every Angle.”
Katharine Asals takes a comprehensive approach in “Angles on an August Lake” at Follow Your Nose. Not only did she take photos above the water and at water level, she also takes us below the lake for full effect. I quite like the unassuming gaze of this particular lake denizen. Check out her full photo study.
This week’s photo challenge of capturing a subject “from every angle” was perfect: it was all I could do to get his large thoughtful head in the frame. Backing up to get him all in the frame took me way too far from my subject for my liking. Instead I focused on his feet—the size of dinner plates, his soft, probing eye, and his noble profile.
At The Gravel Ghost, we loved Merilee Mitchell‘s portrait series of Jesse, “her friend in the desert.” The sharp focus in black and white captures a myriad of textures including Jesse’s grizzled salt and pepper beard, his tanned, lined face, bristly eyebrows, and big smooth smile. Be sure to check out Merilee’s full Jesse study.
Flowers were a lovely and popular subject in response to “From Every Angle.” We enjoyed this floral surprise by the blogger behind TakeTwo. Each flower image features a miniature photographer navigating the petals in search of the perfect shot.
The blogger behind The Best Years Are… captured potter Lambeth W. Marshall throwing a new pot. We love the juxtaposition of the spinning wheel against the firm yet gentle pressure of Lambeth’s clay-covered hands as she forms a new creation. It’s a delight to watch art unfold before your eyes in this photo essay.
