Here are some examples of how small changes in a setting, small changes in your angle, or small changes in the set up brings small differences in the photos.
Have you played "spot the differences" when you were kids? I want you to do the same - look at each picture and comment below the one major difference you notice in each photo.
Spot the Difference # 1:
|different background on the back - the change a print pattern makes|
Spot the Difference # 2:
|different white balance - camera setting|
Spot the Difference # 3:
|difference in props - addition of spoons and some color to the image|
Spot the Difference # 4:
|difference in saturation making a bland color look vibrant - camera setting|
Spot the Difference # 5:
|different background below - the change a colored background makes|
Spot the Difference # 6:
|different angle/position - how much of something you want visible|
Before you leave, tell me if this exercise or this post was helpful in getting the point across? Or leave a suggestion, or some of the things you have learned over time. But if you just write a meaningless "good post, interesting post" kind of comment - rest assured I will delete it.
