I know many of you have seen these shots before, but I thought it would be fun – for me – and interesting – for you (I hope) – to see them presented in a different way. I’ve used my standard black gallery frame in my shots on My NAPP Portfolio for quite some time now and I think it works really well. But I felt like something a little different would be a great exercise in looking at my photos in a new way.
A solitary image can be a breathtaking thing to behold indeed (Did I really just type that? It sounds kind of silly in an overly dramatic sort of way, doesn’t it?) but another consideration is to see how juxtaposing multiple shots of the same subject – or in this case many shots taken at the same location – can give you a fuller experience of the subject.
The use of an odd number makes the image more visually engaging. Because it can’t be divided easily your eye tends to find it more interesting to look at. And with each image fitting in a square you have a cleaner, more uniform look that allows the viewer to focus more on the subject and it also reinforces the connection between the images.
In any case, for whatever reason, I like just like the way these look. And isn’t that what’s most important anyway?
