Street Photography Quick Tip 10 – Using Photographic Obstacles
My Street Photography Quick Tips are short, easy to read and easy to use tips that I think could help you while shooting in the streets. Today’s post is about using photographic obstacles to your advantage.
Have you ever found a parked car blocking that perfect view in a city you visit? Well, you can try to walk around, but sometimes that won’t help because the nice perspective disappears or there is another obstacle blocking your view.
Well, as simple solution can be: Use it to your advantage. Include it in the composition. It just might made an otherwise boring composition all that more interesting. In this case I included the front window and the roof of a parked car als reflection surface while taking this shot in Nuremberg’s historic Old Town below the Imperial Castle.
Try it yourself! Don’t be frustrated with this stupid obstacle, accept the challenge and have fun!
