Last week, I challenged you to get creative and show off your own unique perspective. To add your own twist to a simple subject. How did it go?? I tried it with the simplest object I could find: An orange. Here was my list of different perspectives to try:

  • Up high
  • Down low
  • Directly above
  • Directly below (through something transparent)
  • From the subject’s perspective
  • Far away, including the scene
  • Super up-close including only details

I didn’t do all of these, but as you’ll see below, I kind of “colored outside the lines” at the end.

Here are some of the photos I took, below, starting with the boring straight-on shot: Down low, wide angle, including surroundings: Super up-close: From the orange’s perspective: From directly above: After peeling: Totally playing with my food! Not all of these are keepers, necessarily. But I had a LOT of fun doing this, and discovered a ton about my camera, my creativity, and all that you can do with an orange
