weekend hashtag project: #whpperspective
this weekend, the goal is to take photos and videos from a different point of view, as in this featured photo by mao may (@maomay__
). here are some tips to get you started:
capture a familiar subject or scene from an unexpected angle. get up close and let a face cover the entire frame, or make a puppy look large by shooting from ground-level as she stares down. find a high vantage point to show the wider context of a festival scene or bustling market.
use geometry to your advantage. look for graphic lines — in bridges or telephone wires — that converge to a vanishing point in your composition. find a new way to capture patterns in everyday places, like the wheels of bicycles lined up in a rack, or symmetrical bricks in an unruly garden.
play an eye trick. defy gravity with simple editing, like rotating the frame. recruit a friend to make a well-timed leap, that, when rotated, looks like they’re flying through air. or turn a dandelion into a human-size parasol by playing with scale and distance.
