GET CREATIVE WITH PERSPECTIVE
TAKE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY FURTHER BY TAKING FULL CONTROL OF THIS COMPOSITIONAL TOOL
Find out how to add depth and scale to your images for maximum impact
There are a number of reasons why the photos that leap out at us on Instagram or online gallery sites do so. It can be the colours, the light, or it could be the composition. If it’s the composition, then there’s an excellent chance that the reason you find yourself looking twice at the photo is because of the way that perspective has been used to create a dynamic, striking image that makes you see the world in a whole new way.
Looking up at a subject makes it seems imposing and dramatic, while looking down from an elevated perspective provides a kind of overview that can give the impression that the scene is reduced in scale somehow.
Over the next few pages, we’ll be taking an in-depth look at perspective, exploring exactly what it is in its various forms and how it can be applied to different subjects, from landscapes to portraits, to ensure that even though your photographs are flat, you feel as though you could walk right into them!
