365 Project – 270: Composing a photo for a caption, a card, or a facebook cover

An easy photo card idea!

 

When I set up this photo I was initially just wanting to take advantage of the gorgeous light and take a pic with some negative space.  Then when I saw how those clouds looked like caption bubbles,  I asked Nora to stretch her arms out wide and give me a happy face.  It was too sunny for her to look at me so I had her raise her face with her eyes closed. Then, I had her try another pose with just one hand up, looking like she was serving up that cloud. And, to get that perspective that she’s way up high, I just crouched down low. That piece of driftwood is not that high. (BTW – do you see that she’s riding a driftwood bunny rabbit? Nora wanted me to point that out to you!) I thought about making these into cards for her grandparents but, mostly it was fun intentionally composing a photo for a caption. I also realized that I tend to take pics with my negative space on the right, instead of on the left, and those pics don’t make for the best facebook cover photos. Well, there you go…a fun photo project for you. 🙂

    Great!! I’ve noticed for a long time that many of your pics would lend themselves to this type of treatment.
