Capture the details

Details define a picture. It’s hard to present a story, meaning, account or statement with a fuzzy image. A picture must convey and communicate. It must be able to stand alone without words or descriptions. Hence it must be clear, crisp and faithful. Unless an image is meant to be an abstract art, then that’s a different story. According to writer and photojournalism professor Cameron Knight, detail shots “draw attention to a specific detail of a subject that might otherwise have gone unnoticed.” In the article The Art of the Detail Shot: Capturing Beautiful Detail Photographs, Knight expounds on many aspects including using macro and framing, shooting textures and silhouettes, taking pictures of flora and fauna, creating layers and non-close up details and a host of other essential tips. Train your eye to see details. Photography is very personal. It is about capturing things and subjects others overlooked.
