Morning All! Today I’m taking a trip down memory lane and posting a photo I took on a trip around outback Australia with a school science group. I had my old, pixely Kodak Easyshare to snap the view, so never knew what my photos would turn out like; the lighting always messed about with the colour saturation but that was part of the fun. Now, onto the point – Australia is known for its mining culture, but the below images captured what was beyond anything I’d ever seen….
PHOTOGRAPHY 101 DAY 7 – BIG
I suppose my photographic musing (if I am capable of any such thing) is this: when attempting to give an idea of scale, don’t just look at angles, try to put something in your photo that gives the viewer a reference point for size. My main image has the teeny trucks to provide a cue, indicating that “DAAAAAANG MAN THAT HOLE IS MASSIVE!”, and my second image has my student companions to compare the tyres to. The other two have the downward slope to draw your eye right down the hole….hello vertigo ;P
