Photography Tip - look up!

When looking to make a photograph remember to also look up!Pushing the shutter on your camera when looking at a subject at eye level with nothing else special done is very likely to result in an uninteresting photograph.  Shooting like these I often refer to as just snapshot photography.  I tell my photography students that to make a photograph one often has to show the viewer something she/he cannot also see simply by standing there too.  One of the easiests ways to compose a shot that breaks from this constraint is to simply look, up!  A sharp eyed viewer will also notice one of my other favorite composition techniques in the above shot of Signature Tower in downtown St. Petersburg--ending lines flush in corners.
