Watch Your Horizons
I always say to budding photographers, Watch your horizons, as there is nothing I dislike more in a photograph than tilted horizons.
At first glance this photograph may give you the impression that I did not heed my own advice, but on this morning I was coming down off of the Hump in Kananaskis Country, and with my mobile stopped on the road, I shot this photo giving you an idea as to what goes on in my mobile while out shooting photographs.
If you notice, the distant horizon is on the level, which tells you about the grade of the backroad that I'm descending.
For the record, I always use a tripod when shooting photographs (unless its sports, action, or street photography), and both my tripod and the ball-head mounted on it have built in bubble levels, and I use them religiously when composing photographs.
There is nothing worse than photographs shot with tilting horizons, trees tipping over, buildings not on the square, etc; well you get the picture!
