Photo Friday: A new look at photographic cliché.

April 24, 2015

Here’s a subject I’ve been thinking about for a video, and I just posted it on NaturallyPhotographic on YouTube.  Thanks to Instagram, Twitter, and other equally prominent social media sites, many of the photographs we grew up loving have become common, and everyday; shots like sunrises, sunsets, and food.

With such a subject saturation, both amateurs and professional photographers have started to steer clear of subjects that could still have so much potential.  The question is, how can you take a photograph of, say, a sunrise, and still give it something special?  Today’s photograph is my response to that.  It is a simple answer that is more simple than it seems.  Introduce a new element that isn’t found in other photographs.

In my case, I chose to use The Spring Point Light sillouhetted against the sunrise, with a tanker floating nearby, waiting to enter Casco Bay.  This not only adds interesting elements, but it also gives you a sense of location, and time of day.

Before I start rambling, here is the link to my channel to see the video https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2IaJTvV8u1BwIJbu3kc5oA Check it out, and here is the picture, I hope you all enjoy.

Day 12: The early morning sunrise

The early morning sunrise

 

The early morning sunrise

Has a beauty all its own,

As the red dances

Through the clouds.

 

A vision of beauty

Created for inspiration,

To begin a new

And joyous day.

 

God’s own gentle

Loving reminder

That life is always beginning,

And will never end.
