Photo Of The Day by Laura Zirino (3/27/2013)

Photography From The Edge by Laura Zirino

Laura Zirino submitted this dramatic photo to the new People In The Landscape Assignment that opened yesterday (3/26).  Framing the shot with the photographer on the left was a perfect decision. It creates depth, dimension, balance and most importantly it creates the feeling of a person interacting with this wild scene. Zirino got this photo of the Grand Canyon from the edge of Hopi Point, hence the title, Photography From The Edge. She used a Canon EOS 5D Mk III.

I’ll be choosing a Photo Of The Day every day. I’ll be selecting the images from the various OP galleries including AssignmentsYour Favorite Places and all of the OP Contests. Also, for each issue of the magazine I go through the Assignments galleries and choose a few to be featured in The Best Of Assignments in print. To get your photos into the running all you have to do is submit them.
