Photo Challenge

Perspective

Thanks to Paul for providing this week’s Challenge.

Perspective. Think about the appearance of things relative to one another as determined by their distance from the viewer.

For example objects nearer to the viewer appear bigger than objects which are far away, and straight lines leading away from the viewer (such as roads) converge on a point. Take a photo which illustrates perspective, looks at the world from an unusual angle, or otherwise plays with our expectations of perspective.

Here are some examples: http://xenophilius.wordpress.com/2009/11/13/top-20-forced-perspective-photos-photos/

And here’s the Youtube video which prompted this suggestion: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ivlVfChBkzg

So, there’s your challenge. As it’s Easter, this will be a two-week challenge. Please send your entries in by noon on Tuesday 13th April. Good luck, and have a Happy Easter!

Challenge Admin, I enjoy taking photos mostly of landscapes and architecture - but I will try anything! I mostly shoot film and I spend a lot of time in my darkroom trying to get the perfect print. I'm a sysadmin for a living and I also enjoy cycling and music technology.
