Do you remember that post I did some time back on How A Different Perspective Can Change The Photo? Will I wanted to show you a few more photos of a particular subject matter, in this case the beautiful bird of paradise flower. This post is actually the third in the series discussing changing the way you approach your subject matter, the last two being buildings.

OK, so let’s look at the first image which has this lovely flower set up with the dark green background of the bush.

Now let’s walk around the flower giving it a different background.

Using a shallow depth of field blurs the background making the flower stand out that much more. You will notice that taking a photo from the other side of the flower also changes the hue and colors slightly giving it a completely different look. Which one do you prefer and why?

So, remember that it’s always a good idea to walk around your subject, not only to get a different angle or perspective but to see how a change in background and lighting affects it.

In my next post I will show you how getting up close to the same subject matter can give your photo a real artistic feel about it.
