I have been intrigued by perspectives lately. I find that even subtle changes in the following items can add dramatic effects to a photo, in turn, increasing the attention/investigation by an observer.
- Position of the photographer in relation to the subject
- Level/angle of the camera
- Unique width/size of the photo area
I have been practicing with extreme changes in these areas to better understand what I like and don’t like. Once I feel that I’ve gotten a true grasp and can fully control the effects, I will start to incorporate them into my work.

Experiment #1- Mexican Restaurant
Really not pleased with the outcome of this photo. Since it was my first attempt, I won’t be too hard on myself. 😉
Experiments #2, 3, & 4- My Office
Still not really liking the results but can see some improvement.
Further Experiments- Vacation at the Lakehouse:
I am more pleased with the results of these photos. A couple of them may even be album worthy. 😉
(Really like this one)
(Another one of my faves)
(Learned that I should’ve had them stand closer to me)
(Learned how critical it was to capture people while they are not moving)
(I love the changes and intensity in color on this one. Wouldn’t change anything about it.)
