Take your time and tell me what you think. I will admit I am not an expert in the field.
And most of my shots that show any real perspective are by accident so far. But they are pictures that I hope you will enjoy as much as I did taking them.
The concept of perspective in photography is to take a picture at angles that will show depth to them. It is almost like looking at 3D without really having 3D.
I will be adding or perhaps changing the photos in this topic page on perspective. I say this because the concept of exploring item placement and comparison shots is more detail than I usually get involved in.
You may have noticed throughout my site that my passion is traveling and sharing my own perspectives along the way. My goal is fun and I hope to bring some of that into your life as well.
Taking a look at perspective in photography really brings your shots to life. It's all in the angle of your shot. The first image in this row says it best.
I did not use a fishtail lens. My camera doesn't have one. But I did capture this corner just right and I ended up with a circle instead of a square.
Some tricks are as much your imagination as anything else with my pictures. That stairway to nowhere for instance was actually taken right after a flood. Those stairs lead to the sidewalk below.
Stairs and sidewalk are nowhere in sight. The handrail is the only sign that there ever was a path to the lower lever. Don't worry, it will be back next week when the water level lowers again.
I think all three of these images hold a special place in my heart. I know it isn't easy to see but that raindrop on the end of the maple leaf has a reflection of a nearby tree.
The rail fence in the middle appears to be dancing along the hillside.
And doesn't it look like you could dive right into that stream. Or better yet, cast your fishing rod in for a quick evening meal.
There are many photographers in the field who can teach you much more about this technique than I can. You might consider Amy Renfrey's Digital Photography Success
