"We advance the art and science of photography through technical and aesthetic educational programs and through public service photography."
Join us for our June General Meeting, were Lewis Katz will be returning for a presentation on "Perspective and Perception : The Art of Seeing". In this program Lewis will demonstrate how small changes in your perspective can produce large changes in your perception of your imagery. In the end it is your personal perspective and perception that will connect you to your images as well as connect your viewers to your images.
"In the most basic sense perspective in photography is in regards to how you hold your camera while composing your image. Do you use a lower angle, a higher angle etc? Do I use a wide angle lens or perhaps a telephoto or maybe even a macro? All of these different lenses will provide a different perspective or your composition. But in reality perspective determines how you are viewing your subject manner and how your are composing the image. Characteristics such as distance between objects, the type of angle used, scale and contrast also determine your perspective in regards to the image. Your perspective is also determined by your previsualization of the subject matter as well as your personal attitudes and beliefs as well as your emotional connection, or lack of connection, to your subject matter.
In the end all of these factors combine to form your perception of the image. This can be as simple as is the image sharp enough, did I compose the image correctly and did I use the correct aperture and shutter speed. But again in the deeper sense you should consider if you gave the subject matter the respect it deserves as well as taking your time to make all of these critical decisions."
