Take a spin
Reaching into the way back machine once again. This is from my very first photography assignment in my intro to photography class.
The assignment was about perspective. When we pull out our point and shoot cameras, or flip open our camera phone, we all get the exact same perspective. We see the point of view of a 5’8″ person (or however tall you happen to be, I picked 5’8″ because that is the national average..shush). This assignment was supposed to get us to think critically about how we see the world around us.
Taking a photo of a dog or a child? Don’t point the camera down at them, take a knee and get down on their level, or even get down lower and shoot upward.
For what it is worth, I was laying on my back when I took this photo of the ferris wheel. I got a lot of weird looks from the other Balloon Festival attendees.
