Whilst looking at the blog of good friend and photographic wizard, Mike Pereira, I noticed an image he recently posted looked quite familiar. I wasn’t sure why, and never gave it any more thought. Until this afternoon when it dawned on me – the 3 rocks in his picture are the same 3 rocks in a photo I took. Not really a surprise since we were set up quite close to each other.
To me, they are two completely different photos. One is monochrome, the other in colour; one shows the sky and epic clouds, the other only shows the water; one is taken looking straight out from the beach, the other is from a different angle – and that’s all just on composition. Each photo evokes a different emotional response and depicts the time and place in a different manner.
This is what I love about photography. You can take two photos of the exact same subject by different photographers and they would produce two completely different images. Well done Mikey!
