An obvious exception

In February I posted a photography tip on avoiding “converging verticals” in gravestone photographs. You know the look: when rectangular gravestones end up looking like trapezoids in your photos.

The joke is on me because some gravestones are meant to be trapezoidal.


1911 — 1970

1908 — 1993

But see the reflection in the stone? The gravestone may already be in the shape of a trapezoid, but the photographer (that would be me) is crouching down to get the photo anyhow—without tilting the camera.

Good tip.
