Photography With a Purpose

Photography - Stones 1Here I was looking for a relaxing stones pic.  First I tried this view at the lakeshore with nice stones under shallow water.  I really like the play of light and water over the base of stones.  It’s interesting, natural, and yet, wouldn’t detract from any message I would put on top.  The color of text will take some trial and error.  Sometimes I will put text right next to an image like this.  I think it lets the viewer enjoy the peace and tranquility before processing the text.  And in my business… massage therapy… it lets the viewer experience a little bit of what I might offer; a temporary relief from stress.

Photography - Stones 2Next, I tried dry stones on the beach.  I really like the variety of sizes, shapes and colors here.  I do think the first shot is less interesting, though, in a way due to the water overlay which lends everything some sameness.  Here I find I am more drawn in to inspect more closely, something I’m not going for in an advertising shot.

Do you take photos with a purpose like this?  I’d love to see yours!

I love the shot with the rocks under water! As far as taking photos with a purpose, my main purpose right now is learning how to take good photos. Maybe some day I’ll have more of a purpose than that, but I think it’s going to be a while. Celeste 🙂

Practice makes perfect! It does take time, though!
