BeyondMegapixels.com has a superb article titled “5 Ways to Hold Your Viewer’s Attention“.
Well what got my attention is Tip 5: I’d never read about this “Break A Pattern” method before, so I thought I’d give it a shot with a photo below, “Lens caps and an SDHC card”:
OK that was an extremely poor implementation of the tip, but I had to shoot something as soon as I read the article, otherwise I would tend to forget about it over time.
Shot settings and equipment for those interested:
- Nikon D300 on mirror lockup (MLU), aperture priority, ISO 200, f/8, 1/1.6s, and my favorite settings.
- Sigma 150mm f/2.8 macro for Nikon lens
- Gitzo GT1931 tripod
- Phottix Cleon N8 wireless RF remote control (real handy when shooting in mirror lockup mode — read the review).
