You know how some people are just photogenic. No matter what the lighting is or if they are all sweaty from the gym, they are still going to look damn good.
Well the same goes for certain objects and structures. I am such a sucker for things like water towers, lampposts, and fire escapes, and so I thought I would create a list of my 16 favorite things to include in photographs. These objects won’t always make a photo, but when included they will almost always make the scene more photogenic.
What are yours?
Bad for your health, great for your photos.
Especially when contrasted with dirty backgrounds.
An easy way to add an element of pattern and design into your photograph.
It’s a good thing those glowing cellphone and iPad screens look good in photos, because unfortunately they are becoming hard to avoid these days.
The old frame within a frame.
Particularly the translucent and colorful kind when lit from behind.
Turn them on their side and to an angle to create an illusion.
Even better when you tint them and add some colorful frames.
Quickly becoming antiquated. Catch them before they all disappear.
Especially when they are in the middle of nowhere.
