Perspective & Creating Drama in Photography
11am-1pm Saturday, August 20
The dark side of the moon, the deep end of the pool, glass half empty or half full, the opposite point of view. Life would be pretty boring without different perspectives. Abe Lincoln had his own take on it, “We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.”  Photography, like life can get pretty boring without considering different perspectives. Changing perspective can create drama in photographs. Come out for a couple hours of capturing the world looking down, up, over, out, and sideways.
