There Are Actual People Out There
When spend your days in a few rooms the excitement of real mail has taken on a new meaning for us all. It is a tactile and real way to get communications from those near and far who we cannot visit. Maybe we will see a resurgence in hand-written letters.
I rented this cool lense for this week from Lense Rentals:
Selected as a 52 Pick Photo!
This week some type of contortion is going to happen. Either by you the photographer as you lie, crouch or perch to shoot a photo from a different angle. (This is NOT a tripod type of challenge! ) Or by the viewer as she turns her head, or the screen, sideways to try and make sense of the photo's angle. You can even stand on your head....or get your model to stand on his or head! Every single photo that we take is shot from a specific angle. Often we do not even pay specific attention to the camera’s angle but this week we definitely are going to! You can think of shooting everyday objects from an angle one does not usually see such as the soles of shoes, inside a bowl of popcorn or the top of a door. Or you can shoot your model from a differernt angle, You can also play with forced perspectives where a foreground and background subject are angled in such a way as to create an optical illusion.
