Sunday, August 11: The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is One Shot, Two Ways.
Cheri Lucas of WordPress writes: This week, photographer Jeff Sinon talked about his process of finding the best shot. Before taking a picture, he studies his scene — looking at a shot horizontally (as a landscape) and vertically (as a portrait). With this honed, critical eye, he decides what orientation works best for his photograph.
For this challenge, capture two images — a horizontal and a vertical version — of the same scene or subject. There are no concrete “rules” here, but a) it should be evident that both shots are of the same place/location or person/thing, and b) your photographs should ideally have been taken during the same shoot.
Here are mine from Europe, from the beautiful town of Sintra in Portugal, one of my favorite places so far in the world! The first set is the Chapel at Quinta da Regaleira.
Click on any of the photos for a larger view and mini-slideshow.
Here are two shots inside the Main House at Quinta da Regaleira. This is from the Hunting Room, where the theme of the “cycle of life” is evident throughout the room.
Finally, also in Sintra, is the Palace of Monserrate.
