But this subject intrigued me, and I’m not sure why this subject was added, unless you look at this idea in this way: “How to take a photograph of something you’ve photographed before, but DIFFERENTLY”.

Because why would you photograph something again, then repeat it? I’ll tell you why! Because if you’ve been taking pictures now for a while, hopefully you are learning something new about how to take pictures better. Then in your mind, you would think of how to make a previous photo better.

Here are reasons to repeat a photo again :

  • You have learned to photograph landscapes when the sun is lower in the sky.
  • You remember the rule of thirds, and would like to improve on the previous picture.
