This week in Brooke Snow’s class we learned about perspective and the concept of less is more. Guys, perspective is so crazy important. It is amazing how much changing your perspective while you are behind the camera, can make a HUGE difference.

There were two parts to our homework assignment. Part one was to take a picture like someone would normally take it. Then, you are supposed to change your perspective and see how it affects the quality of your image. At first, I had decided to use Lexy as my subject but she decided playing in the sun was much more interesting than posing. I got a few cute shots and then I let her do her thing. Piper was very cooperative and plopped right down in the shade to be my perfect little model.

The first image is my “typical” shot. It’s not horrible but definitely not my favorite. The next two shots are from another perspective and they are so much better! See how important perspective is?


For the second part of the assignment, I decided to take some pictures of Josh’s new guitar, or should I say, the love of his life right now. It’s ok. I’m not jealous. Anyway, the first shot is fine but it didn’t really show the sleekness of the guitar. I wanted to show the amazing color and how, well, awesome it is! So I removed the extra parts that were not needed.

I couldn’t resist sharing some other images that I really liked, but since I was limited to the number of images I could use for this assignment, couldn’t be a part of the homework. Of course, Lexy got one picture included. She’s too cute to leave out!
