Assignment #5 – Alternate Perspectives

Assignment #5 due October 20.

Using photography, how does one make the ordinary, extraordinary?  One way is to change the angle from which the subject is shot. Show the  viewer a different side of something they are used to seeing in a certain way.  We will go over examples of photographs shot at different angles to make it look more dynamic or interesting.

Your assignment is to take two photographs of one subject: bird’s eye (high angle) and worm’s eye (low angle) perspective in your photos. Email both photographs with your name, date, and assignment information.
