photography of collections

My son wanted to write a post on his blog about collections. Yes, my nine-year-old has a blog and I help him by taking most of the photos. You can see it here:

So, it got me thinking how am I going to photograph these objects that mean a lot to him and make his story even a little bit exciting. After looking at the objects, some interesting ideas took shape.

Making a pattern.

Collections-1

Lining up items and then changing direction.

Collections-3

Using a focal point.

Collections-2

Placing objects on the diagonal.

Collections-4

Instead of lining everything up in boring lines, we switched it up and my son’s story took on a new life. I am excited to keep experimenting with ways to photograph “stuff”.
