A New Point of View – March 2023
Separating the subject from the background is often one of this wildlife photographer’s primary goals. Perhaps nothing is more effective in creating this result than an extremely low point of view. With a long lens virtually parallel to and only inches above the surface of the water, only the subject is in focus. The water, any reflection, and any background are all rendered as a soft, smooth mix of tone and color. Sometimes the duck’s disturbance of the water’s surface will add a reflection of blue sky…I’m loving it.
