I work a few hours each week with the organization Madelife
in Boulder as a photography mentor. I enjoy getting to share my love for and knowledge of photography with other hungry creatives. A couple of weeks ago I was talking with one of the apprentices about changing your perspective and brought up a few photos of mine as an example. I then flipped the images to show how you can gain a new perspective just by rotating an image…and BAM I loved my new images!
I went to St. Peter’s in the Vatican in 2009, and while waiting for the Pope to speak I was standing around bored. I started photographing people’s shadows on the cobblestone and I loved the shapes it made.
But by rotating the images you get a whole new image that I think I love even more!
Play. Experiment. Change your perspective!
