Weird Photos: I'm always looking for the strange or unusual.
Unusual and odd photos make an impact. Sure, you can use colors to help create an emotional impact. You can bump up the contrast to help make your picture more stunning for your viewers. But nothing makes more of an impact than interesting, funny, weird, amazing subject matter.
Strange photos stand out because you are showing your viewer something out of the ordinary. That alone, will give you pictures more power.
An odd photo could have exposure problems. It could have composition problems. It could have focus issues. There are any number of things that, technically speaking, we will allow for if the subject matter is compelling enough to make us not recognize the technical prowess behind the photo.
Below are some of my favorite photos that for whatever reason, just seem a bit odd or out of the ordinary.

I'm pretty sure this proves humans come from turtles.

The GoPro Hero can make people look weird.
It's not hard to take photos that are strange or unusual. All is takes is the willingness to look at something that's considered normal and come at it from a different angle. Maybe it's getting super close-up to an object. And maybe it has a whole lot to do with luck. But luck favors the prepared. Always be ready for the weird and unusual and when it happens or when you see it, please, take a picture of it and share it with the rest of us.
