This is the the last of our blogs about our epic trip to the Palouse region of southeastern Washington.  The peculiar and picturesque Palouse geography consists of more or less random humps and hollows of silt dunes which have been planted with wheat and other crops.  It also has an abundance of barns and other interesting subjects.  Here are a few examples of how to see and photo the same subjects differently.

I usually see the world in wide angle and Mary’s sees the world in telephoto.  I shoot pretty straight forward landscape and she makes much more creative photos, especially abstracts, based on what she sees in nature.

I love having a partner to photograph with and it’s even better because she’s my wife.  When we are out together, we almost always come from different perspectives and have different ideas of how we want to compose and process our photos.  Sometimes one seems better than others, but we have found that different people have different tastes, including us.  What I do like is we are trying to be deliberate about our choices.

We now have six recent blogs about the Palouse region.  Check ’em out.
