Sometimes you have to turn your camera....

Same picture, cropped 2 different ways. The landscape view (side to side) focuses more on the "who" of the picture because the subjects fill the frame. The portrait view (top to bottom) gives you more information about the "where". Yep, it's Alaska. This is only true for this example. A landscape picture can record vast vistas and tall mountain ranges if that is what fills your frame. The point is, identify what composition you are trying to create and don't be afraid to turn you camera on a an angle to get it. This is also proof that we did take our kids somewhere, so later in life they can't make us believe that we never did anything with them. Oh and that pretty blonde girl, she's always making a "face" so we have to record what we have to work with. ;D
