I found of late that I tend to shoot quite a lot of sculpture, especially living so close to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, however I often get home to find I’m disappointed with many of my shots. So its interesting to see that Digital Photography School is listing a collection of tips for taking photos of outdoor sculpture.

A lot of the tips are common sense, such as the one below, but its still worth a look over if you find yourself taking shots of this sort of subject.

Getting a good angle on a sculptured face is just as important as getting a good angle when taking a formal portrait of a live person. Walk all around the sculpture and figure out the most interesting angles before you look through the viewfinder and get side-tracked by apertures and exposures.
