Inspiration Prompt #9 – Perspective

July 7th, 2008 by Avital

On a recent “inspirational pilgrimage” on the internet I came across a fun little blog called “Little People”.

In this blog you can find pictures of tiny dolls situated in various positions on street scenes around the world. The photos are taken from different perspectives – up close and far away.

The close ups make the dolls look very realistic, but the far away photos are allowing you to grasp the right perspective of the tiny dolls against the magnitude of the street scene.

This blog is a very good example of the importance of perspective and the power perspective has on our minds. The importance of looking both up close and far away for getting the entire picture.

A more philosophical approach to this blog makes me think about us as tiny dolls, scattred around the world and being short sighted. We are keeping up with our daily routines without stopping and looking a bit farther away. This blog has made me put on my glasses and look a bit farther – what has it done for you? Do you care to share?

    What an intersting view point. What imagination and detail goes into this artform, just amazing. Now, how to capture that kind of life art on photo, I am so used to zooming in and filling the frame, my favorite thing to do.

      This is a great way to look at it or to derive from this artists. The importance of taking pictures from different perspectives because each photo tells the story differently or from a different angle. I saw you’ve got great photos on your blog and the different perspective in each one complement each other and help in telling the whole story.
