I thought I’d participate in Raj’s Learn Photography – 3 – Breathing Space Challenge this week.
I took this photo this past spring at our Tulip Festival in Woodburn, Oregon. I liked the strong color the jacket this photographer wore. I knew I wanted the jacket to be a strong component of the photo but I also wanted to show the tulips.
This is my preferred cropping of this photo.
Here is my my camera and exif data.
- Sony a7II Full Frame Mirrorless – handheld
- Sony FE 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 G OSS
- F/14.0, 1/250, exp. -0.3, ISO 1250
Here is the original uncropped photo. I obviously wanted to get rid of the noise at the top of the photo.
Here is another cropped version. It is not my favorite, because all I see is his jacket and hand leveling his tripod. I really don’t notice the tulips he is photographing as much.
Update: As per Raj’s suggestion, here is another crop idea based off this last photo.
