Day Three: “Water” — Image Orientation

Day Three: “Water” — Image Orientation

In the Caribbean. The water is beautiful.

We all have stories about water: how it has saved or defeated us. How it reminds us of family vacations, outdoor adventures, or the hot summers of our childhood. How it symbolizes a place we’ve left behind, or one we dream of visiting.

How will you interpret today’s theme?

Today’s Tip: Ever wonder whether a photograph will work better horizontally or vertically? After you snap your picture, rotate your camera and take a shot from the other orientation — horizontally if you first took the picture vertically, and vice versa. Which way works better?

On our Way

We have come to learn that oceans drive global systems that make it possible to live on this earth. So much of what we take for granted – oxygen, rainfall, much of our food – is dependent on the health of the ocean.

As understanding grows it is apparent that management of this global resource is of prime importance.
