OBJECTIVES The aim of this photo assignment is to experiment with perspective to find the most effective viewpoint and improve the composition of your image. The choice of viewpoint, the position from which you photograph the subject, can have a profound impact on the quality of your images.
WHAT TO DO Look at examples of images for perspective and space. You are going to experiments with different viewpoints, worm’s eye, bird’s eye or eye level, photograph something - anything - from close up, far away, from all different angles and in different lighting situations, to create a less common perspective of otherwise familiar subjects. You are looking for space within perspective, lines, objects or things that recede into the distance. You can find space/perspective within an open space or tight, confined areas.
WHAT NOT TO PHOTOGRAPH: streets, streets and more streets, sidewalks, train tracks or the obvious! PLEASE BE CREATIVE WITH WHAT YOU’RE LOOKING FOR. Space can be found everywhere!
EXPOSURE By now you should have a full understanding when metering and which techniques should be applied.
THINGS TO DO AS YOU ARE TAKING THE PICTURES Look at your notes for creating a good composition. Keep these tips in mind. · Vertical/horizontal · Different point of view · Rule of thirds · Content/subject · Get close · Fill the frame · Depth of Field · Avoid distracting backgrounds · Leading lines · Shapes · Contrast · Emphasis · Balance · Sharpness
DON'T FORGET ABOUT LIGHTING!!!
