Photo 101: Day Fourteen: Scale

Today, play with scale: you can use anything and everything to help convey size in your image, from your Chihuahua to your Mini Cooper, to an aerial view or perspective from a penthouse floor.

Tip: Don’t just point and shoot. Observe your scene closely before pressing the shutter, considering how all the elements in the frame interact with your subject, and how all objects in your foreground and background relate to one another. Make an object appear larger through a ground-level POV. Place two things side by side in an unexpected way. Surprise us!

    I love this image. The colors and composition, (and the scale) it, just all makes me happy. I’m going to have to sign up for this next time around!
