Photography 101: Street

My Photography 101 assignment today is Street.

In your wide shot, also think about its basic components: a foreground and a background. The foreground is the part of your scene that’s nearest to the viewer, and where you can place a subject or focal point of your picture. In the image above, the woman balancing the fruit baskets is the subject in my foreground, and the storefronts behind her make up the background.

Hopefully this fits the bill.  It is a picture of the Numinbah Valley Road near Murwillumbah.  This was taken on our way back from Tyalgum after a lovely day out for lunch.  The clouds were perfectly formed leading you into the mountains at the rear of the picture.  My foreground is the curve in the road and the barbed wire fence on the right.  The wonderful clouds and mountain range form the background.  I hope I have balanced it correctly.  It is a beautiful part of the Northern Rivers of New South Wales and a delightful day trip from the Gold Coast.

  1. I love how the clouds are pulling away, and drawing you forward, crowding the scene, all at the same time. I want to take the road to see where the clouds are rushing to.

  2. This is astonishing — a landscape of almost surreal beauty! Everything is right here, the angle of the shot, the curve in the road, the heavy sky… Excellent job here!

  8. It’s a very dramatic looking pictures, I also love giving the sky that effect when working with shadow and light. It makes it look a bit stormier than it actually was! The picture makes you want to walk down that road and see where it takes you… Well done 🙂 !


I would love to hear from you...
