Angle for interest

I don’t mean you requesting it – I mean you are creating it.

See this boring shot of an alley? No interest point, no interest.

I suppose we can wait for a street person and make it black and white. But perhaps we can add interest by making the composition more compelling?

Now we have a good off-centre composition, strong diagonals, and even better light (since more of the image is now dark, we can expose for that). I like my diagonals in the corners.

So in this case, as in many, tilting made the image better. Don’t always rely on it, but don’t ignore the possibility either!
