Driving through my in-laws’ neighborhood (for a little while longer), I saw the sun lighting up this tree’s red leaves. I was glad that I always have at least my Canon Powershot A560. After I pulled into a side street and parked, I noticed that from the opposite side the tree didn’t look interesting at all. The backlighting made it.
It’s great to see so many joining my Project Looking Through. Framing subjects with objects from the scene always has appealed to me, but I don’t do it often. I think it’s also an exercise in foreground. Often, allowing a little foreground can transform a humdrum photo into something more. It can add depth and give the viewer a better sense of being there.
See more Project Looking Through participants at the bottom of my latest PLT post. Join in if you would like to take part. Have a great weekend!
