Take a Photo of the Blue Sky

Look up and take photo of the blue sky. Why not?

Like many users of camera app on your smartphone, we take many photos within our field of view, especially in our eye level.

It makes sense for what in front is what we are eyeing often.¬†We don’t walk forward without watching what’s in front of us.

Watch where you are going…

But the blue sky appears daily above us and it only takes a few seconds to look at it everyday.

If the storm is coming, we look up for dark clouds. Hoping to reach home safe and dry. Or, to get caught in the storm and drenched to the skin.

Take a shot when looking up. The sky is worth a look.

There are tall branches from the lush trees, lines from skyscrapers, bridges, flying planes, slow-moving flurry clouds, rays of lights piercing through as the day set or pale gate of sunrise breaking the morning gently.

Lenticular clouds from the mountains and low clouds forming stratocumulus, cumulus or the grayish stratus.

By any good chance, double rainbow or silver lining after a heavy downpour.

For sure, you breath better by not looking down.

A few seconds daily by looking up and take photo of the beautiful blue sky.

Your Phone is a Camera

Your phone is a camera.

Casual shot edited with one of the many presets from the camera app on my smartphone.

If photographs are taken without a purpose, it should be captured casually without a composition in mind.

Using Lines or Ropes for POV Imagery

Making use of lines or ropes to lead viewer’s eye to the subject-matter.

Similar to point-of-view (PoV) imagery.

Guiding lines are effective techniques to improve photography composition.

Application is not limited to flying a panda kite like this image.

For hiking in rough terrain, climbing ropes are used to assist hiker to a higher ground.

Likewise, it happens in descending.

Using mobile camera is the most convenient as focusing lens can be placed directly nearest to the rope.

Or even mobile phone touching the ropes while capturing an image.

Doesn’t matter if you capture it while smartphone is in inverted position.

Image produced will still be an upright orientation.
