Our challenge this week is to demonstrate the use of scale in your images. From the challenge post: This week, play with scale. Insert something into a scene to highlight size: your two-year-old in a field of flowers. A dime next to the huge cinnamon roll you picked up at the bakery. You can view the challenge post here.
One of my challenges when I’m out shooting landscapes is to try to cram the giant three-dimensional scenery into a tiny camera sensor and give the eventual viewer an idea of the subject’s actual size. The easy way out is to include people or recognizable objects in the shot. The relative size of the subject to the inclusion is really helpful in establishing the relative size of the subject. I submit for your approval, a small gallery of images that contain a reference to scale. Click on an image to enlarge it and to scroll through the gallery.
