Finding Photographic Love in Nature

Posted on the 19 July 2013 by Holly Higbee-Jansen @hhjphoto

I am one of those people who see photographic compositions everywhere. I have been composing pictures all my life and it just comes as second nature to me. I know not everyone is like that. I have students that wait for me to point out a composition, but I try not to do that because then they aren't learning to compose their own images right?

Sometimes I see repetitive compositions in nature like faces or certain shapes. One trip in particular to the Sierras I kept seeing hearts. I would see them in trees or in roots, rocks or leaves. Then it became a game to me. I starred looking for them and they jumped out of everywhere!

I guess my question to you is have you taken the time to see the hearts, or the flowers or some beautiful shape or composition right before your eyes? Take a moment and look around. You'll be surprised at what nature will give to you.
