How To Take
BETTER HOLIDAY PHOTOS with Melanie Lastoria
There’s always more than one way to look at any situation and that’s what I try to do with my photography. People get use to coming across a scene they’d like to photograph and taking the photo from that eye level.
Sometimes shooting straight on is perfect for the situation but for me, more often than not, I like to try different angles. Shooting Up at a building is a great way to isolate a certain aspect of the architecture, including something in the foreground like the street lamp provides further interest.
Shooting Down is the perfect way to capture several flights of gorgeous stairs in an old building or to discreetly capture this scene of a fisherman hard at work.
I also love to Shoot Through objects, like fences. It adds another dimension to the photograph, often framing up the subject in the background.
These are a few examples of adding interest to your photos simply by changing your perspective. This holiday season up your photographic game at seasonal parties and family gathering.
SURREY NOW-Leader & ACS Partner To Create three Special Arts Features in 2017
To help celebrate our 50th anniversary, the ACS was thrilled to partner with the SURREY NOW-LEADER in 2017, to produce three one-page special features designed to highlight the vibrant Arts communities that exist in our great city of Surrey. Together we produced and published features on the PERFORMANCE, LITERARY and VISUAL Arts disciplines.
Our goal was to draw attention to our hundreds of members and to show new artists that there is a place for them in the Surrey Arts community.
