Point of View

Focal length of a lens, its angle between the subject and photogrpaher and of couse the setting of the f stop - relationship between sharp and unsharp area, are some of the most fundamental elements of the pictorial compostion, besides the light, shadow and the position of the subject itself.
This image, capture with a Canon 1Ds II, and the trusty EF Macro 100/2.8 at a relatively close range, which means I will have to be inside the pool at the same time and keep myself low enough for this image. Shot in Changburi Resort & Spa of Ko Chang, Thailand (.... again), duirng a sunny day, in order to create the right subject and background luminance balance, a ring flash was use to light up the face of the model, the lovely Thai model - Gift, as well as reduce some contrast on her face, to arrive at this final image.
