A couple of weeks ago I talked about my 2019 Personal Project called Project 52. For this project, I post one image a week to Instagram. And every month is a different theme. January was “low light“. February was “storytelling“. March’s theme was “portraits” and April’s theme was “connections“.
May, 2019 was all about “layering”.
Layering is one of my favorite compositions in photography and one that documentary photographers use often. It allows the photographer to play with their environment and to tell a better story of the subject. There are usually foreground and background elements, rather than a single subject all by itself. This added depth lets you and the viewer explore a bit more. The idea is to balance the image, using inanimate and animate (people, animals) things to frame your subject.
Here are my images for “layering”. I love every single one of them. If I had to pick a favorite, it would have to be the one of the sunset at Harvey’s Beach, in Old Saybrook, CT.
Thank you for stopping by. Be sure to check back for June’s theme for my 2019 Personal Project, which is Full Sun. 🙂
