Photography is everywhere around us. You’re probably thinking “no it isn’t”, but it is! If you think about it, our eyes are like a camera lens. Everything we look at can actually be a picture. For example, look around. That simple bush your standing by could be the subject of a great photograph. When you move real close to it, it’s like a close-up picture and you can see all the tiny growing buds. If you step further away, you can take in the entire bush and some things around it as if you are looking through a wide angel lens. You see, photography really IS everywhere!
Here are three photos I took (on my iPhone) of the same image. I used three different lenses creating three different perspectives. The first picture you see was taken using the basic lens that comes with my phone. For the next image I added a special wide-angle lens to my phone. The last I switched to a micro lens (also attached to my iPhone) which gave me a great closeup of some petals in the flower arrangement. I think each photo looks really good but each one has a unique perspective even though they are all of the same thing.
Being part of ITM has given me more opportunities to explore photography. I really want to pursue my interest further by starting my own YouTube Channel about photography! I’m excited to take more classes at ITM on photography in order to learn more about being behind and in front of the camera. I’m only starting my journey and I can’t wait to see where it leads me!
