“For this challenge, capture two images — a horizontal and a vertical version — of the same scene or subject. There are no concrete “rules” here, but a) it should be evident that both shots are of the same place/location or person/thing, and b) your photographs should ideally have been taken during the same shoot — where’s the challenge if you’re just plucking out pictures of a particular location or person from your archives?”
“..where’s the challenge if you’re just plucking out pictures of a particular location or person from your archives?” Okay. Agree. Using my wife’s Galaxy Tab phone camera, I went out of the house for my take on this week’s photo challenge. I had yet nothing in mind for my subject. I looked at the clock and it’s 1:08 in the afternoon. I have to make sure that I don’t go against the light to make my subject clear enough. We can shoot against the light, why not,but that challenge was past one month ago. Remember the theme: Golden Hour?
Then, I thought of our other house near the tomb of my parents-in-law. Yes. It can be my subject for this challenge. I positioned myself on the western side and leaned my back against a big mango tree and made two clicks: one in landscape orientation and the other in portrait.
This is what I got.
A small portion of the fence surrounding the family mausoleum is seen on the left, our farm house is at the center – the main subject, and a small portion of the bamboo trellis for my cucumber is seen at the right.
What did we observe in this photo challenge? The landscape shot makes the subject look like ‘zoom in’ and the portrait shot makes the subject like it was ‘zoom out’.
Another interesting challenge! I can’t wait to see what’s next 🙂
