See How These Photographers Took the Mundane Subject of Windows and Made Their Shots Interesting

Share: 

One thing we constantly talk about at Light Stalking is the skill of taking mundane subjects and interpreting them in a beautiful or interesting way. This is part of the skill set of a talented photographer and it's not necessarily an easy one to develop. We think these photographers have done a pretty solid job of demonstrating this skill in these photographs of windows. Composition, colour, implied negative space, lighting – all of these have been brought to bear to generate great shots from a mundane subject. Share your own efforts in the comments!
