Think Small for a New Photographic Perspective

Small Examples

Photography isn’t just about capturing a moment, it’s also about seeing the ordinary in a new light.

A wise photo teach of ours once told us that no matter where you are, no matter how ordinary your surroundings may appear, there are always great photographs to be made. You just need to figure out where and how to look.

Here’s a fun exercise for gaining new perspective on the ordinary: examine how your world might appear to someone much, much smaller than you. Whether your star is an old G.I. Joe, a Barbie, or a mini Steve Jobs, this exercise is sure to give you fresh eyes.

Here are a few examples to get you started:

Slinkachu’s Little People
Hand-painted figurines traipsing all over London. Some shots depict typical tourist scenes, while others portray acts of violence and gore.

Karin Stack’s Believe You Me
Sets and models of figurines among imagined landscapes in the Romantic Landscape tradition.

Ernie Button’s Cereal Landscapes
Ordinary breakfast cereal becomes quirky landscapes of pyramids and mountains.
