Weekly Photo Challenge: An Unusual POV


SMWS Cask 3.188, The Camping Trip

As Seen Through a Glencairn Glass

The above photo of the Scotch Malt Whisky Society’s Cask No. 3.188 is my answer to The Daily Post’s “Weekly Photo Challenge”. Below is a bit more information about this week’s challenge:

Go out and take photos and share a shot that reveals a new and different POV. You can take a picture of a familiar subject in a fresh way, as I did of the iconic London Eye in the image above. Instead of a more traditional shot — placing the structure in the middle of the frame and taking it from a more straightforward angle — I focused on the paper art plastered on a red telephone booth along the embankment, further away, and placed the London Eye in the left of the frame, seemingly insignificant.

You can consider other approaches, too:

Use something natural (window, tree, wall of a building, etc.) to frame your shot.

      • Get low on the ground to take a picture from a very different angle.
      • Focus on a specific part of a person, object, or structure (instead of all of it) — or intentionally cut off a part of your subject or scene.
      • Place something in between you and your subject/scene to offer a distinct perspective.

So what do you think? Did I properly answer this week’s challenge? Let me know in the comments below!
