We took this photo with my husband on our hike to the river. I wanted to see the clarity of the water before I will bring model with me. It is easy to do the photographing then modelling under water as I thought :)

Straight horizons, or Perceptions!

Posted by Fred Turck on October 22, 2014 at 13:00 2 Comments

I have noticed quite a number of obviously crooked horizons in some of the photographs that I see posted on Pixmag.

I have always displayed a selection of my work on the walls of my office, and I was quite offended one day when a visiting professional photographer pointed out a crooked horizon in one of them.   I KNEW it was not crooked - I'm usually meticulous about that kind of thing!

When I calmed down, I had to acknowledge that a horizon can LOOK crooked because of the lay of the land, and should be corrected to satisfy the viewer.   It's rather like hanging a picture on the wall in a room where the ceiling or picture rail is not straight... one HAS to compromise and find a medium somewhere between the truth and the perception.

So that's what I do now, when I can - after all what is art if the viewers cannot perceive what is shown?
