When taking pictures I sometimes change the way I take the shot in order to take the best picture. This is what I tried to do when taking a picture of the ingredients for one of my favourite stir-fried vegetables: bok choi with shitake mushrooms. (My recipe can be found here)
I did not see much of a difference when I took these pictures. However the difference is more noticeable when I look at some of the pictures I took at the 2011 Buskerfest in Toronto. The landscape shot showed more of the audience, while the portrait one showed more of the building in the background.
When I think of it, I change the orientation of the shot. Looking through my files I have decided, however, that I do not do this enough.
Do you change the orientation of your shots when you take a photo?
