Photography 101 – day fourteen {scale & observation}

Don’t just point and shoot. Observe your scene before pressing the shutter, considering how all the elements in the frame interact with one another. Make an object appear larger through a ground level POV.


This is a cool point of view…the shells look huge, where as the person & the buildings look like toys. The buildings themselves, go on and on…you don’t see the end and you never see the water’s edge…it is just assumed.


Here is another low POV. The sand is in focus but it emphases the huge expanse of the Pacific Ocean, beyond the shore. If you look carefully, you can see the swells in the distance.

Pier - POV

This view from below the pier is always fun as you just don’t know how far out the pier goes…just a lot of geometric patterns here…old wood & new, where repairs have been made.

Thank you for visiting.  Until next time, Connie 🙂


I am living my dream life in the country! I love photography, travelling, cooking, baking and I even try my hand at quilting.

  1. I love photographing at the beach, the tiniest things look really big if you can get close enough. Or if the critters don’t skitter away. You did a great interpretation of the theme.
