TIP 2: When using a wide angle lens, or the wide end of a zoom lens, consider composing with a strong key element in the front of the shot (whether using either landscape OR portrait format). This sets the scene and introduces the viewer to what you saw/felt/wanted to portray in the shot straight away. Maybe a boulder on a beach or a hay/straw bale in a field. Here, I was trying to capture the culture of the graffiti artists and saw the bike as part of their world. By going in close and low I have used it as my introductory foreground, setting the scene for the rest of the action – graffiti’ing the wall in an urban environment. The low sun adds interesting shadows too.
