Do you edit your photos in a special way?
Do you increase the saturation, like I do, on certain photos?
Some weather conditions mean our snapshots might need brightening, or a slight change in contrast, the background removed, or a portrait touched up. We might want to add a frame or see what the photo looks like in Monochrome?
Portrait or Landscape Aspects in Photography
Experiment with your photography.
Take a shot then turn your Camera around. Take the same shot in opposite format.
Portrait and Landscape. Check the difference.
Weekly Friendly Friday Theme – Two Ways
For the photo challenge this Friday, I am asking you to show the Friendly Friday community one or two photographs presented “Two Ways.” That is the same photo or the same environment presented in two different ways, or at two different times.
Using the Worpress Media Block – Image Compare
Using the Image Compare block is a perfect way to present this photo challenge, especially when they are of the same size or the same angle.
If your theme doesn’t support this technique or you don’t edit your photos, post a shot of the same location at two different times.
How to Access the WordPress Image Compare Media Block
To access the media compare feature: Find the + sign on the taskbar. Under blocks, scroll down to find all media blocks, and select ‘Media> image compare,’ or search for ‘image compare.’
Upload the two photos as prompted and use the slider to see the changes.
In the individual block settings on the right sidebar, you can choose for the slider to go from side to side or top to bottom. This feature works brilliantly if you have photos the same size but still can be effective, if they are not quite exact, or, if you want to reveal a before and after.
We can post a photo two years apart.
I was in Tyssedal Norway, in one of the branches of the beautiful Hardangerfjord in 2014 and then again in 2016 at the same spot. Not an exact match, but close enough for impact.
This WordPress Image compare format may be useful to document changes in a landscape that you encounter as the seasons pass by. Photos from your archives might work well.
For example: Summer and Autumn, Winter and Spring, depending on your hemisphere. Or colour and monochrome?
Pop Art and other Photo Effects
Adding a special effect can significantly change the atmosphere or mood of a photo.
I tried something very different in the following photos. Sort of a pop art feel. I don’t feel it is very successful. This was just a fun edit and still quite effective in this format. Use the slider to compare.
A new Friendly Friday prompt can be found at TheSandychronicles, next Friday. In the meantime, are you joining in this week? If so, let us know in the comments box so everyone can find your entry.
Friendly Friday Tags and Pingbacks are preferred.
