Photographic perspective is often a process. Many times, the initial approach to a particular scene requires a little study, some idea generation, and close observation of light direction. I chose these two images to illustrate this process on a shoot this summer. The first image is environmentally interesting, and is sort of "o.k." but the second image, which was at the end of the session shows some movement towards creative perpective, interesting angles, and general composition. It takes a little time, but in the end, the rewards are usually relative to the input. Not to mention, this is simply a very cool place to start with -- icebergs from a tidewater glacier stranded upon the beach of tidal lagoon in Prince William Sound, Alaska.

The beginning shot - stranded icebergs in a tidal lagoon
Canon 1Ds Mark II, 16-35mm f2.8, 1/180 sec. @ f20, ISO 160

The final shot - after a little work on the perspective
Canon 1Ds Mark II, 16-35mm f2.8, 1/60 sec. @ f18, ISO 100
