I love chess even though I’m not that great at it. I started tonight by playing around with photographing patterns around the house then moved to the chessboard. The board itself didn’t move me (no pun intended) and I couldn’t do anything exciting with the board (at least for me). Then I was looking at different angles of the board, considering POVs of a player. I finally opted for the side view with the opening move – white moves two and is met by black. The challenge is set and the dance for victory begins. I decided to shoot very shallow to focus on the warriors entering into battle first.
