In My First Travel Photos – Doors, I showed off my brilliant door photography from my first travel trip ever to Croatia and the Balkans.
I also mentioned how I still am obsessed with door photos but still have trouble with them, especially in the narrow streets common in old Romanesque cities (like Split, Croatia) and old Spanish colonial towns (like those around South America).
But in the comments, Don C from Candid Life Photography and Anthony from The Travel Tart, both mentioned tips – like getting close up to the doors, or showing them in relation to people, and focus on angles and details.
A few weeks later I went on a pretty impromptu trip to Jardin, Colombia – a tiny pueblito in the coffee region of Colombia (about a 3 hour bus ride south of Medellin), and a town known for, among other things, its vibrantly painted, and ornately decorative house exteriors.
So, with the advice I had been given still fresh in my mind, I decided to try it – taking close up, and artistic shots of doors, using people as reference, and focusing on details – instead of trying to get the whole door top to bottom from straight on.
This is what I shot. I want to hear how you think these photos came out.
