Thanks to Patti of Pilotfish Blogsite for her ‘Perspective’ challenge. Click HERE to view. Well worth doing so.
Patti’s photo lesson is that by simply moving the position of the camera up or down or whatever (moving away from traditional ‘stand up, point and shoot’) can give a photo a more dramatic effect.
Take MB’s shot of a tram station in central Europe from a few years back, for example. The weather was crisp and cold, but the ground was bone dry. To get a different perspective, MB lay flat on his stomach on the street, during a brief peaceful interlude from passing traffic, to get the following shot for a ‘something different’ look.
But it’s not REALLY dramatic MB.
OK lads. MB agrees that it’s not the most dramatic shot ever taken by MB. He’s just using it to make a point, perspective-related.
It’s still not dramatic MB.
Oh, forget it lads!
