Behind the Lens - Vertically Challenged

Photographers shoot fewer vertical than horizontal photographs mainly because of the way cameras are designed. But keeping an eye out for vertical subject matter can lead to creative images.

When subject matter or movement in a frame is along a vertical axis rather than a horizontal plane, a photographer can fill the space more completely and creatively with a vertical image. This vertical image helps relate the quilt above with the women on the bench beneath.
