Looking straight down can make you dizzy. But look a bit above, at the horizon, around you and you can grasp a bigger picture.
Sometimes we are so used to our usual way of seeing that we completely forget about different possibilities.
Sometimes all we need to do is to change the perspective. Suddenly, everything becomes new, fresh and exciting. And we can keep rolling.
Today’s shot was taken from the roof of Opera House in Oslo. Big, glass walls were just asking for using them in a photograph. We decided to take a different angle and try shooting from the very top straight down.
Here’s the view from my perspective. Camera was at the top. We used a tripod to get it a bit further from the wall and aim the lens directly down. We used 95mm, 1/400s, f10, ISO 200.
The wall wasn’t straight, and so we had to use a tripod, to get the camera a bit further from the edge. Marta used a remote to take some pictures while I was posing below. After trying a few poses, I went back up, where we took a few more ordinary pics.
It’s good to get back into photography! More to come…
