Perspective in Photography
Tyson Smith
March 13

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.
