It has been my experience that, learning to see is one of the hardest skills to master. One of the ways you go about mastering this is to capture photos of the same scene in completely different styles and composition. For example here are few photos of the same scene captured as either an all inclusive landscape or a minimalist image.
This month’s challenge to be able to capture a scene in completely different styles.
Objective: Capture a single scene or subject in multiple different ways.
