Photography 101: Landmark

Landmarks are everywhere: iconic places, meeting points, markers on a map. Today, consider a unique point of view as you photograph a landmark.

Once you’ve chosen your landmark, move around to experiment with your POV, or point of view. Today, crouch or lie on the ground to get an interesting street-level angle, or walk around your landmark to examine every possible perspective. – The Daily Post

What is a landmark in Montreal? How about more specifically in Old Montreal? Most of you will know the waterfront and even more of you may have heard of the Notre Dame Church.  That is my star landmark.  However, choosing an angle proved to be harder. One that appealed to me the most? Thats an even harder decision.

The morning sun got in the way a little so I tried to hide in the shadows.  My Samsung Galaxy S3 can only do so much 😉 If I didn’t have to rush off to work, I’d probably have tried some effects on it.

What is the first landmark that pops in your mind from your city?
