One of the key elements of photography is learning about how it affects your vision. Every photograph has a point of view and it depends on the photographer so that the viewer can use his idea to make the images more interesting.
What is perspective?
Perspectives in photography refer to the dimensions of objects and the spatial relationship between them. It is related to the condition of the human eye in relation to an image object.
The farther an object is from the human eye, the smaller it becomes. It looks bigger because of the relationship between the two objects. If there is an object in the foreground it may seem even smaller.
Perspectives can affect the appearance of straight lines. Any lines in the image will appear to move away from the viewer’s eyes or interact with the horizon in the distance.
Eye level also determines what a viewer can see in a picture. If you sit down, you have a view from a different perspective than if you were standing on a ladder. The lines will appear together (or not) and the rest of the objects will look smaller or larger depending on their relationship to the scene.
In fact, the perspective of photography can vary depending on the size of the object and the object itself depending on the object from the camera. This is because the perspective is not determined by the focal length, but by the relative distance between objects.
How to work with vision
Although we often talk about the ‘correction’ approach, it’s not always a bad thing in photography. In fact, the photographer uses every aspect to combine the aesthetics of an image and make it more interesting.
Good perspective control is because the work of the great photographer has come out of the norm because they have practiced and understood how the relationship of objects can affect the viewer.
Vision control with lenses
People often think that a telephoto lens exaggerates the perspective of a wide-angle lens when it is compressed . This is not actually true.
- A wide-angle lens only creates the illusion of an exaggerated perspective. This is because a wide angle is a large distance between the object in the photo and the object closest to the camera will always appear larger.
- With a telephoto lens, the distance between the objects shrinks, thus reducing the difference in the size of the object.
Photographers can use this difference to their advantage. For example, a landscape photograph becomes even more interesting when an image of an object of the whole object will be shown larger in a wide-angle lens, this adds depth and scale to the image and allows the viewer to get real sense of space in the landscape.
Through a telephoto lens, the photographer can confuse the viewer by creating two objects that can be seen around the same shape of different sizes. For example, by placing a clear distance away from a 2-story building and placing a person’s camera and the exact location between the buildings, the photographer can give the illusion that the person is as tall as the building.
Perspective from a different angle
Another way photographers can use perspectives to their advantage is to give viewers a different look at the object they are familiar with.
By taking pictures from low or high angles, you can give viewers a new perspective that is not like their normal eye-level view. These different angles will automatically change the relationship between the subjects of the scene and add more interest to the image.
For example, someone might take a picture of your coffee cup if you were sitting at a table and it could be a nice image. Looking at the same coffee cup from a lower angle, say equal to the table, the relationship between the cup and the table has a whole new look The table now takes you to the cup, it looks bigger and more impressive. We don’t usually see this scene this way and that adds to the photo’s appeal.
The point of view is correct
Perspectives are as fun to play as there are times when you need to correct perspectives. It becomes a factor when you want to capture something properly without confusion or illusion.
When creating photography, perspectives can be a problem for photography, as it will appear to shrink from a point above them.
To address this problem, the photographer uses special “shield and shift” lenses, which have a flexible bella that accurately flips the lenses for the effects of perspectives. As the lens is disguised parallel to the building, the lines will move away from each other and the dimensions of the building will appear more accurate. If we don’t see the camera, our eyes will still be able to see the lines, but the camera won’t.
