Let’s do something crazy this week…don’t focus on the obvious. I think we naturally focus on the face if we are taking a picture of someone. Why not keep their face in the photo but focus on something else? The key to achieving one of these photos is changing your focal point. You will need to be shooting in manual mode in order to pick what you want the camera to focus on.
Personally, I think not always focusing on the face can tell a better story. Check out some of the photos.
The next two were taken by my friend, Trisha @ Story of the Day
When we went to Tokyo last year we visited one of the largest Budda statues. I took the typical “tourist” photos of the statue but decided I wanted to do a little something different to capture that day. I took the below photo by focusing on a tree but kept the statue in the background. This is the picture I have displayed in house to help remember that day.
Another interesting way of taking an obvious photo in a different way. I have seen so many cool iPhone photos and have been wanting to try one myself. I’m sure you will see more to come but I thought this was a fun way to show off this parade at Tokyo Disney.
