A unique perspective is an important part of being a successful photographer and artist that helps separate you from other artists.
Too often in life, we pass by important things.
Let’s pause, change perspective
and see things more clearly.
– Sergio da Silva
I like dandelions, I always have, I have very fond memories of them from when I was a kid. So naturally, I like taking photos of them. Every time I came across a dandelion my perspective was always from above. On one particular day while I was in the countryside just outside of Dallas when I came upon the dandelion above. I thought about my perspective and then wondered what its perspective was. I kneeled down and looked at the world from its angle, I found it to be interesting and fun.
Many people go through life never really challenging their perspective nor trying to see things from the perspective of others. One of the great challenges of photography is to show things, people, weddings, events, etc., in ways that are unique and to give the viewer a renewed appreciation and understanding of the subject.
What are you working on? A relationship, a piece of art, a song, a problem? Try backing away from it and re-approaching it from a unique perspective, I’m sure the results will be eye-opening.
