Eyewitness Photo: Capturing Grandeur

BreakingModern — With smartphone photography there are more than a few ways to make the most of your photo. We all know that ample light and framing are key, but you can drastically change the feel of your shot with the point of view. Get up close and personal with your subject. Get in front of it, get behind it, get on top of it and get below it. The shots will all come out differently, and hopefully you’ll snap a beauty. Like this massive photo of stunning Italian architecture by Delia Balsells.

Delia is a big fan of Android and HTC mobile devices. The shot was taken in Milan at the Duomo. Ms. Balsells used her HTC One M8 and the stock HTC filter called “Garden” to give the shot its warm, soft hues and tones. What I enjoy about the shot is the point of view. You get a sense of the massive grandeur of this building. The way she frames the building and crops in is simple, yet it truly makes your eyes run from the base of the shot to the highest point of the building. You get it right away: “Wow, this place is massive!” Thank you for sharing your shot, Delia. It’s awesome!

One of the things I look forward to every day is publishing a photo captured by an HTC smartphone user in this Eyewitness Photo column. If you have a favorite photograph you’ve taken with your HTC mobile device, email a link to the photo to [email protected] or ping me on Twitter or Google+. Be sure to include any photo or editing apps used to craft your masterpiece, and the make and model of your HTC phone.
