Perspective

Time for assignment #2 in C+C Photography's Photography Workshop. This one was on composition and perspective. Take an object, photograph it as the eye sees it, from above, utilizing negative space, blurry, etc.

I used my celedon Hull deco vase. I imagine others added more items to their still life, but I thought the vase was enough on its own.

Here's a collage of my best photos (I'm new to this collage thing, so I made myself make one).

It was interesting to see how different angles, light sources, etc, could create such different results. Looking forward to the next assignment!

It is so wonderful to see that a subject can look so different from different angles. The close up's are so artisic.

Great use of an object. I thought to just use a set up that already existed somewhere in my house. I actually thought of using the dirty bathrrom sink with the pile of toothbrushes and toothpaste tubes...but I didn't. Lovely vase from different lovely angles. Enjoy your weekend.
