Working The Clutter On The Beach

Posted: February 22, 2016 in Uncategorized


The beach is a great place to find cool macro subjects like feathers, driftwood, odd critters and sea shells, Here is an area on the beach that has a mass of piled up sea shells. Not a pretty picture, and just to much chaos for the mind to take in.

Now lets work in a little closer on some subjects. Now I’m seeing a little more of the subjects.

Let’s move in even closer and the shells start to have more impact for the viewer.

Now lets add in a cool subject like this starfish I found on the beach, and it adds a nice touch to the shells. If you want more impact, move in closer and fill the frame with the subject when you’re working in clutter.
