What is Perspective?

It another technique in compositions but is not a rule as such. It is making the viewer see things in such a way that you might have seen or envisioned. It is bringing in spacial relationship between two or multiple objects within the frame. Or making the viewer to see things in a certain way.

In this photograph, I have tried to bring a perspective how the rider will be looking at this scenario in front of him. This includes the bikes in front of him and landscape. If you look at this photograph, his helmet alone occupies 10-20% of the entire image. This creates a spacial relationship between this person and the next rider and the next.

This photograph is little different from the previous. In this photograph, there is nothing else. It is a plain photograph but it creates a relationship. A differently abled person is using a walking stick on his left side. On the right side, he has a camera and capturing photographs. This is the relationship that I want to show the viewer. How a differently abled person is passionate about photography and trying to capture different photographs.

In this photograph, an interesting photographer who is trying to capture something which is much further away in the frame. What I have tried to do is to include the entire frame surrounding him.

This is little different than the earlier one which we discussed. The lady is sitting calmly looking at her mobile. I have tried to capture this discreetly by including the walls on both sides leaving a frame in between and then brought her into focus.
