This exercise taught me that from a child’s perspective the world around us looks quite different. In this image the iron fence can become a major factor in how a child sees this place. I hope you enjoyed this exercise as much as I did and I wish you a great week-end.
On one side children naturally look up in a grown-up world on the other side they are closer to the ground and sometimes they see and pickup things that we adults simply overlook. When I was actively looking for something to photograph on the ground I discovered this cigarette but that most likely by chance ended up in this small hole in the cement. In order to shoot this image I had to block off the direct sun, use an extension tube and a 2X extender on my 70-200 lens.
Go photograph your community through the eyes of a child. Since I uses a tripod most of the time I set my tripod to about 2.5 – 3 feet length and I walked through town and started photographing. Do this for a week and see how different your images look. In addition you may also get a better understanding how children see the world. As always. enjoy your photography!
I went to the local market and photographed this bakery stand. The camera was barely above the table and I noticed very quickly that most of my shots would be in the upward direction.
