Day 31 – Footprint

5 May

As we were crawling around the creek rocks in North Carolina (I have no clue what the name of the creek is) I took my shoes off and got in the water so that I could get closer to what I was trying to shoot. As I stepped out of the creek I noticed the contrast of my wet footprint against the dry rock and just had to get a shot.

I didn’t do any special settings for this shot so I have no wisdom to impart to you about that I just thought it was a cool photo. I framed it using the rule of thirds, which I am trying hard to keep in mind while taking photos, but other than that I was simply drawn to the contrast the water brought out in the rock.

For those of you that aren’t familiar with the rule of thirds, it is basically a composition rule of thumb where you divide the shot into nine equal parts using 2 imaginary vertical and horizontal lines, and all important elements of the shot should be placed along these lines or at their intersection. Of course there are always exceptions to every rule but I have found that if I keep this rule in mind I get more dynamic shots so I always try to apply it even if I take a second shot completely ignoring the rule.

    Awww that’s a really cute shot. I love it a bunch. The rock texture is great.

    It’s a good thing your have small cute feet. I’m not sure my feet would have had the desired effect lol!

    This would make a great computer wallpaper. It’s eye-catching, yet serene.
