To do this the requirement was to take 20 images each with a vertical and horizontal shot. Below is a slide show of the 20 examples I have taken.
Also besides the obvious use of the vertical orientation for tall objects and standing people I also have considered the following when choosing the subjects above;
- The subject is already vertical
- Height needs defining
- Motion of the subject is vertical
- Defining direction of subject gaze - up or down
- Directing the viewers gaze within the image
- In portraits it can be used to retain tighter control of basic composition rules e.g. the rule of thirds
- Isolate a feature of the subject
- Defining the position/boundary of an object within it's containing space.
