Textures – of which wood is one – always adds interest and character to a photo. When I have a photo session, I always strive to have pleasant surroundings but I sometimes fail to look for textures. Something I have to improve on. In the meantime, for this exercise, below are two examples, one very old and one very recent.
The photo below is of Old Dan. As an aside, that’s an odd name since he was only about 1-year old when I took that photo. And that was about 1-1/2 years ago. The client and I were walking around her yard finding interesting spots to take photos, and she mentioned that Old Dan loved to climb the pile of logs that they kept for their fireplace. Because of that, I wanted to take a photo of him on top of them. But they lived in a subdivision and, if I had, I would have shown all the roofs of the near-by houses. So, I just asked Old Dan to pose by the pile of logs. PS – you can tell it was an older photo; I removed the leash, but the collar is still positioned as if the leash was still there – Oops!!
This next photo was taken at my most recent session with Jack. Not only was it my favorite picture of the session, but it turned out to be the client’s favorite one too. I think it was a combination of the wooden fence as well as the leading lines.
