More ideas, less clutter. That’s what I strive for when it comes to taking photographs.
Sure, you can go out and buy a bunch of fancy filters and other types of equipment that make your photos look artsy, but I like to keep things simple. I also like to be prepared whenever inspiration strikes, so having the right tools with me at all times is essential.
When I’m out on a job site, I always have my phone with me in case an important call comes through. I also like to take pictures of the work that I’m doing because it’s a great way to keep memories of the jobs that I’ve done.
Most cell phones don’t have the greatest camera in them, so I usually end up taking a lot of pictures and then picking out the best ones when I get back to my computer. Sometimes though, I come across a scene that is too good to pass up, so I have to get it while the moment is right.
This was the case when I found this old shed that was about to be torn down. The lighting was just right so I had to take advantage of it.
I rarely ever shoot buildings and structures, so it was fun to create a unique angle and setup for this shot. Most of the pictures on my wall are of landscapes, seascapes and portraits, so breaking out of my element was fun and very refreshing.
My process usually starts with finding a tool that will allow me to get the type of shot I have in mind. For this one, I wanted to shoot from a low angle so I could include the piles of rubble as well as the sky.
I found a small stepladder, and rested my phone on it while I framed up the shot. The ladder was small enough that it didn’t interfere with the composition of the shot, but I could still get high enough to see through the viewfinder.
Once I had my phone setup and turned on, I used the timer to press the button. This allowed me to get into the photo without having to manually press the button which could have jostled the camera and ruined the shot.
The final step was to find the perfect picture, which is always my favorite part. There are so many ways pictures can be interpreted, and it makes me appreciate photography so much more.
After looking at all of the photos that I had taken, this one seemed to have the best composition and framing.
Photography takes practice and patience just like anything else you’re trying to master. There is a reason that “the photographer” is usually depicted as hunched over a camera with big lenses coming out of it, because it isn’t the easiest thing to do.
Luckily with technology advancing the way that it has, all you really need these days is your cell phone.
