When I started thinking about Point of View, my first thought was, not surprisingly, all about angles; up, down, front, back, etc. But in thinking about it more, I realized it was also about context. Seeing/showing the daffodil's beauty in the context of the season - not just as a beautiful object - significantly improves the odds of showing why it is so welcome. See my blog post HERE to read more about this theory.
Then I also thought about POV in terms of expectations. I love the trees in the dense woods by us. I have often tried to photo them on beautiful days or at sunset or at other times of expected beautiful lighting conditions. But the trees would always meld together into one large cacophony of branches.
I realized today, that maybe I should try another point of view. That today's fog might provide a separating denseness to the air that could define the layers of trees and differentiate them. Well it worked. I finally got the depth and definition I had hoped for.
