Look for interesting details – shape, texture, line, colour.
b. Try both closeup and distant shots.
c, Print some photos as is (in colour or greyscale); also print some as enlargements (up to A4 size) in greyscale. Alternatively, make some rough sketches and enlargements – just minimal lines without too much detail.
