In the Spotlight
Perspective in Photography
Tyson Smith will join us to lead a discussion on the concept of Perspective in Photography. He will demonstrate how artists use features like vanishing points and lines to create depth in an image. He will also show how a photographer’s point of view and the relationship of objects in the image change significantly based on where you place the camera. Tyson is a Certified Professional Photographer and Master Photographer with PPA, and is also the creator and publisher of the free, digital magazine, Smoky Mountain Journal of Photography.
Abstract photography concentrates on emotional response created by forms, color, line, patterns and texture. Often there is no conventional scene though the abstract might be created from realistic elements. Abstract images can be created in many ways, including extreme close ups, an unusual perspective or creative development.
