Tip of the Day – Expanding Perspective
Carrying on from yesterday’s post about focal length – understanding the effects of focal length on perspective comes in handy when photographing a small subject in front of a big background – like Indy the Miniature Poodle here in front of the Brisbane Gallery of Modern Art for my #tailsofbrisbane project. There are two options – the first (shared yesterday) is placing the subject a long way out from the background and shooting with a telephoto lens. The second option is using a super wide angle lens, getting down low and shooting upwards with the subject close to you and close to the background, as in this example. Which look do you prefer?
