Amsterdam Photography

Britsoc Photo Lesson #5 – Its all about the angle!

Technical details; Nikon D700. AF-S Nikkor 17-35mm, f/5.6, ISO 400 @ 6 seconds

“Bike Light Trail, Amsterdam “

There’s no secret to this but so much of photography is the angle you choose to compose from.

So often when I see people taking pictures in the street, I wonder whether they have put any thought into their angles.

This is a great example of being able to create a more striking image by changing the angle.

Normally I’d have had my camera at eye (hand held) or chest (tripod) level for shooting this bridge. On this occasion I’ve just rested the camera on the ground and seen what transpired. Then I got this really interesting light trail from the bike through having the shutter open for a longer time.

I hope you like the image and let me know if you are interested in purchasing it or spending some time shooting in Amsterdam with a one on one lesson to improve your photography skills.
