“The photographer must see diamonds where others see stones” – this is a thought of Assoc. Prof. Petar Abadjiev, which sends a deep philosophical and psychological message. If we think about it, this is not only valid for the world of photography, but for life around us in general. Often while seeing the big picture, we form a final opinion before we go into detail. We often fail to see the unusual under the ordinary shell. In this short etude, we will try to show what the seemingly boring things around us would look like, if we change our perspective towards them.
The following two photos were taken with a phone from the same point of view, as the one we see them every day with our own eyes:с телефон от горна гледна точка, така както ги виждаме всеки ден с очите си:
But what would happen if we changed our point of view and used different equipment? The next two photos were taken in the same place with a mirrorless camera and a 70-400 / 4-5.6 lens from a low point of view.
Somehow things started to change, didn’t they 🙂 We now have a specific object, and the non-standard vision makes the photo different, because the ordinary viewer can’t see it that way. We immerse ourselves in the world of small things and shoot from their point of view. I was thinking that if it rained now, it would have had a beautiful effect with the backlit and the raindrops.
The following few examples are made in this way
And so – this short Etude was intended to show you that there are many interesting and beautiful stories around us. You just have to see them in your imagination and then try to capture them.
