Harnessing Your Superpower (pt. 4)

March 31, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

Pictures are your ability to not only create moments together, but to capture that memory forever. You have, almost literally, the power to stop time.

 

We’re currently on week four of a six-part series on how you can take advantage of your very own superpower AND how to turn it into a fun date night with your family or loved one.

 

This series is focused on creative ways to enjoy and forever capture genuine moments together. If you’ve missed our other ideas, click here to read about silhouettes, reflections, and feet…and fun matching dates to go along with them. This week, we move on with our next idea:

 

Perspective

 

 

I’ve focused for years on teaching different perspectives in my photography classes. It’s something we don’t always think about when taking pictures, but it is a surefire way to create a totally different image. Many times, we tend to get in a rut when taking pictures - pull out the phone, hold it straight up and down, stand up straight, smile, snap. And while there is nothing wrong with these images, sometimes a slight change can be the difference between a snapshot and art.

 

 

A difference in perspective can also give you a better sense of the surroundings, helping to add more to the story.

 

Changing where you stand (or often in my case, where I lay, climb, etc. LOL) can also draw you into the scene, showing the moment from a different point of view.

 

 

Walk around before snapping your next picture. Lay on the ground and shoot upward. Step up on something to get higher. Hide behind a wall or door. Record a whole memory in your image. #CollectMomentsNotThings
