One subject-three ways

Pattimoed of Pilot fish blog, the hostess of Lens-Artist’s photo challenge for this week, asked the participants to showcase a single subject in three ways.


“For this week’s challenge, we’re exploring what professional photographers call “working a shot.” What does that mean? Photographers pick a subject (a place, an object, a person, for instance) and take a variety of photos–by zooming in on the details or stepping back for a wider view. They also vary the angle of the shot–looking up or down or even sideways. They might walk around the subject to get a unique view.

Why? This method can help us discover the best way to capture the subject. I’ve used this method for a while and it never fails to surprise me. Sometimes, the best shot is the last one!”

Thank you Pattimoed for this superb theme

I tried my luck with a particular subject, who was patient enough and allowed me to do my experiment. Thank you, guy, for helping me out for this challenge.

The following images were taken with 100mm Macro f/2.8 lens, and some parts of the insect may be out of focus.

This view reminded me of the frontal view of a fish.

The following image is a right-side view of the insect.

From these photos can you tell the direction of the antennae’?

The insect never moved it’s antenna as I was clicking.

Are they facing upwards, downwards or in a neutral position?

That’s the beauty of the camera position.

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

  1. That was a really interesting question you posed at the end Philo. I went back to the 3 images and you’re right, it appears the antennae had changed each time. I’m stunned the insect let you be shooting away without moving!! Excellent example of the influence the photographer has on the way a subject is seen!

  2. Great model and great work. I too went back to look at the antennae. Interesting.

    The mood, color, personality, and fun changed with all three photos. I like the first , because it does look like a fish, the element of surprise is in the next photo.

  3. You worked your magic, Philo, and the insect was very patient! I’m impressed! You’re right about the perception that the antenna are changing direction. I love the details you’ve captured!
