Definition:

There are many ways to shoot the same subject in photography. What is unique about perspectives is that people will always see something different when attempting to capture the essence of the subject. Many possibilities exist to bring your creativities to photography. This is about learning to see the subject and explore the different options to shoot the same thing. Some of the options that exist are depth-of-field, focal length, separation, compression, and layers. Other elements of perspective include position (from above or below), near-far perspective, and bringing 3-D depth to the image.
