This week’s photo challenge is guest hosted by Christopher Martin.

Lost in the Details. This challenge is about getting lost in the details. Once you’ve found a subject you want to photograph, challenge yourself to work a little further into the scene. Here, I use a landscape as an example, but this approach can be applied to other types of photography.

SHARE A PHOTO THAT MEANS LOSTS IN THE DETAILS TO YOU!

Tip: Get low. In photographing details in a landscape, lower the camera close to the ground to see its impact on the composition. Whether you are using a digital SLR, a compact camera, or the camera on your phone, getting low changes the way elements relate to each other. In the image of the ice and the river, I sat down so the lens was close to level with the arch of blue ice. From a higher angle, the ice looked smaller in relation to the water; by changing my position, I was able to balance those two primary parts in a way I preferred.

Move the camera around to see how a scene changes. Get low, or reach higher for that matter, and bring out the details that are often hiding in plain sight.
