1:1 Part 4
The last 3 posts have been 1:1 landscapes that, in my mind, say something to the viewer. Now, take a person and place them in the picture (hopefully this person is you!). All of a sudden you have an image that says something else to your viewer. They see you there, they can imagine themselves there and you’ve made a connection with someone based on place or activity.
This picture is from southern Utah and is one I’d post on my Instagram page. I’m not taking a picture in this image, it’s not a “selfie” and it’s not a true landscape image. Yet as a photographer, it still fits my style of photography and gives the viewer a connection to both me and place. This small image brings a can create a connection to my audience by showing that I am outside exploring and that this is part of my lifestyle. I follow many active people on Instagram that explore in their free time and few are photographers. I’m inspired by them and I find my day is a bit brighter as a result of seeing what others are sharing.
I’ll touch on this a bit further in my full post about Instagram and photography which will be done soon. Until then, I hope you are able to find a source of inspiration to get outside and see something that will make your day a bit brighter:)
