|Down the road; early Winter|
There are many ways to look at subjects. Sometimes properties get distorted. Sometimes we might want them to be distorted.
Almost all of the time we want to give a certain point of view. Had I crouched down a bit more this scene to the right it would no doubt look different.
This is a normal point of view with maybe a 'smidge' of perspective distortion with the width of the road coming right at us. That seems to be okay since it is a road. Were it an arm, nose or foot that might not really be a good thing! But the line of the road is more forgiving.
|A walk in the Winter Woods|
I purposely set out to photograph the woods in this manner. It was a technique I wanted to try.
I decided one would look nice on a canvas on my wall.
Maybe a converted black and white?
I love impressionistic paintings, they are some of my all time favorites and am thrilled with the ability to control this in camera. Again, the distortion is not something that is too suited to body parts...just points of view... it makes you think.
