Sometimes when you are out looking for something to shoot, one can overlook detail.  One of the exercises I learned early on is to look for and shoot detail.  Not the kind of the detail that requires a macro lens, but the kind of detail that can train your eye to look for a successful photo in a partial image of an object or person.  Perhaps go out on a photowalk with just an emphasis on hands as I’ve done in this series of photos.  Of course, it doesn’t have to be hands, almost anything will do.   How about car wheels?  Or tires.  Or windows.  Again you’re shooting for detail so partial images of objects are ok.

I’m not guaranteeing success with every shot but I do guarantee that you will develop an eye for detail that will make your photos stand out.

Photos taken with Nikon D700 and Nikkor DC 135mm f/2 lens.
