This is another scene I shoot regularly when on holiday at nearby Blackshaw Moor.
Previously, I’ve gone for a low and ultra-wide angle (my default with most shots) from the right side in order to capitalise on the offset diagonals as lead-in lines and a perspective feature.
Things change over the years, and I just couldn’t find my usual angle with the current arrangement of traders’ units and their street furniture. So, I decided to go for a straight-on symmetrical composition (well, as symmetrical as it can be). But still low and ultra-wide, of course.
By comparison, this latest shot is less of an intimate, interior composition and shows more context of the exterior, frontage and location.
I’m quite pleased with the results.
Comments welcome 🙂
