Secondary Point of Interest: Weekly Photography Challenge

Secondary Point of Interest: Weekly Photography Challenge

0Comments

Earlier this week we published a post on composition of images in which author Matt Dutile introduced the concept of adding a second point of interest to your photos to give your image a natural viewing progression.

Adding a secondary point of interest can not only add more interest in your image but reinforce a theme or perspective argues Matt.

A number of people commented that they’d not considered this technique before so we thought this might be a fun weekly challenge – taking photos that not only have a single point of interest – but which have a second one.

Check out Matt’s post and then head out with your camera to practice the technique.

Once you’ve taken your ‘2nd Point of Interest’ photos upload your best ones to your favourite photo sharing site either share a link to them even better – embed them in the comments using the our new tool to do so.

If you tag your photos on Flickr, Instagram, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPS2NDINTEREST to help others find them. Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun.

Also – don’t forget to check out some of the great shots posted in last weeks Black and White Landscapes challenge – there were some great shots submitted.

    A "drive by shooting" from a bus window. Caught this young man herding his cattle some distance from his village in the background. It happened so quickly I had no chance to change camera settings or think about composition.
