Looking back at my photos from Joshua Tree National Park really makes me want to go back there. I was fighting off a pretty terrible chest cold when I was in the area last month, so I was unable to really explore and enjoy myself while shooting. While I did walk away with a fair number of good frames, I know that when I’m able to take my time in the park I’ll get some more great shots.
This is the same joshua tree from this photo seen from a different angle. When shooting a subject that can be kinda boring when shot straight on, it’s fun to experiment with different angles and framing to get a unique perspective. Getting low and close to the trunk of the tree enabled me to give the viewer the feeling that the tree was stretching it’s limbs to the sky. Next time you’re out shooting, try to find a unique angle on an everyday subject.
