Two Photos for Every Scene

Las Vegas Photographer Dave Proctor

When looking through blogs and flickr photostreams, one can tell who are learning and who are the more experienced photographers.  How?  If you go through many posts or pages of photos and they are all in a Landscape orientation like the photo above.  That’s a good indication the person is not thinking like an experienced photographer would.

You see (and will below), there is always two photos in every scene. This was one of the first things I learned once I started shooting with the idea of selling my work.  Whether it be weddings, stock, media, portraiture or sharing your photos with family and friends, changing your camera’s orientation to portrait will give yourself a new way of looking through your viewfinder.  The rules of composition still apply and can bring a whole new way of seeing.  Just like this…

Remember, to look and see in both Landscape and Portrait orientations when you are out with your camera.  Have fun!
