Welcome to Photo Tip Friday!
Today I'm going to show you how a change of perspective can take one subject and make it look very different.
Let's get started!
Here are three shots of a Zinnia, a fairly common flower.
This photograph captures the entire flower and from a perspective we would see it with our naked eye.
If we move in closer and take a picture, the center stands out more, allowing you to see the flowers inside the flower.
But this shot crops part of the flower off.
Why? To focus more attention on the center.
How often have you looked at a Zinnia from the side?
Probably not too often. Look at the layers upon layers of petals.
This perspective creates a completely different look and feel to the flower.
Here is a very different perspective.
Notice the sky in the photo?
I got down on my knees and got under this Zinnia. Then, I took the shot looking back up.
Why? Just to get a different perspective.
When something catches your eye this week, I want you to take multiple shots.
Move around your subject.
Get down on your knees (if you can!).
Look straight down on your subject.
Try to be creative.
Hope this tip helps!
