Let’s talk about symmetry. One of the first rules you learn in photography is the “rule of thirds,” indicating that the subject / focal point should be off-center. Essentially, don’t make it symmetrical, because you want to create visual tension. It’s meant to be more pleasing, etc, and I almost never do it. It’s not that I don’t think about thirds, but I often use it for secondary elements of the image, like features and shapes in the background, and other supporting visual information. But I like to let the subject live in the middle, and giving them space to breathe. Don’t get sucked into rules for the sake of “but that’s how you do it,” like all landscape photos needing to be an orange / teal tint, or that your whole Instagram account needs to perfectly match, or the rule of thirds. Just go with what you like and pay attention to what gets you stoked along the way✌️

BARN SENTRY— Exiting his safe haven; with the last rays of daylight upon his face, lighting his way out from the dark barn. It’s almost time to hunt — meanwhile the storm is rolling in. He is standing tall and firm; a true watchman over all that he loves and protects.
We love how camera’s eye-level position gives the viewer the impression that he is right there with the Maine Coon. How the light is only on his face — like he is just now coming out of the barn; poking his head out.
The ladder next to him gives a simple barn added detail detail and interest. Being able to make out part of the stormy sky behind brings us back to the wild theme of the series; making this manmade building still environmental in nature.

Another shot of @dianahare01 “The Crusher” getting it done! I was like, “Hey, battle ropes are cool, but you look like you could make it even harder and look gorgeous doing it.” So much fun working with this crew for @shopdyi! @summarsalah on the styling and @tonya.riner “The Genius” on HMU.
