Effective and Emotive Barbed Wire Photographs

Share:  

Many subjects lend themselves to emotive photography and one of those subjects is definitely barbed wire. By choosing such a subject (and shooting it well) one can definitely evoke an emotional response in a photograph. We think these photographs have done exactly that.

Awesome shots … encourages me to get out and try some of these styles on the nearby farmlands.

Here is one I took near Beechmont Old School and digitally enhanced

Here’s one of the first pics I captured with my first DSLRhttps://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=136424799716350&set=a.135744399784390.21719.100000464914034&type=1

Some very nice images there. . I often go out and get so tied up looking for big sweeping vista, that I forget how just shooting the small details can have such an impact (and are also much closer to find)!

Nothing special, but I finally have something to share here! It’s a phone pic that I took with the idea that I might be able to layer it onto something else sometime…
