here are 2 (of several) ways of looking at perspective in photography composition

if perspective=point of view, you can shoot from:

  • eye level
  • being the subject
  • bird’s view
  • worm’s view

even the loveliest subject can sometimes lead to quite boring or cliché results. that’s a good opportunity for the photographer to test another point of view. don’t pack your bag and leave before you put yourself in several eyebrow-raising, embarrassing positions 😉

if perspective=depth, I find these are the best tools:

  • objects or things happening in the foreground, middle-ground and background
  • leading lines – objects in such order to lead the eye ‘into’ the image
  • framing

do you have a great perspective photo to share? comment! 🙂
