Hi all 😃 My entry for this week’s challenge, set by Donna of Wind Kisses.
This chance shot I took a couple of days ago seemed a good lead-off point when I saw Donna’s subject. My wife had placed a vase of flowers next to a lamp at the top of the stairs & the composition had me reaching for my camera.
Asymmetry abounds in natural settings, even when there’s a helping hand from the man-made world.
The following shots were me practising with my new DSLR some 13 years ago, playing around with composition.
Now for some architectural asymmetry.
The following shots feature my pocket watches. At first glance, they are symmetrical until you look closer at the face, the hands & the internal workings.
Anyone who follows me & my blog will know all about Lensy; he is, after all, quite a regular player in various challenges. When I first got him, I made him the centre of the picture & looked at the world in an inverted & distorted manner.
While this gives a different perspective, having the background visible can lead to a more interesting shot. These next shots are some of my favourite asymmetrical Lensy pics.
Often, I use a wide aperture for a narrow depth of field to make the image in Lensy the main focus with an out-of-focus background to give an idea of the whole setting.
Sometimes, though, it’s good to increase the depth of field to show more detail of the subject.
Thanks for stopping by & have a great week 😃
