Mastering your Point of View

Maunabo Puerto Rico

Point of view:
A position from which something is observed or considered; a standpoint.

In photography you can change the way your subject is perceived by changing the camera position. The position, direction and height of the camera define the point of view of a picture.

In literature the narrative point of view determines through whose perspective the story is viewed.

In painting perspective is an approximate representation of an image as it is seen by the eye.

As an artist, when I’m creating or brainstorming I’m constantly searching for a different point of view.  In each of my photographs I am revealing my style.  If you look at the photos above; they were each taken at different locations, different cameras and even different years but there is something tying them together.  It is my palpable point of view.

It’s my style = the brand I’ve created as: ©BellaVidabyLetty

When you are creating, painting, writing, etc. how do you decide upon point of view?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“If there is any one secret of success, it lies in the ability to get the other person’s point of view and see things from that person’s angle as well as from your own.” Henry Ford

“There is nothing insignificant in the world. It all depends on the point of view.” Goethe

“There are neither good nor bad subjects. From the point of view of pure Art, you could almost establish it as an axiom that the subject is irrelevant, style itself being an absolute manner of seeing things.” Gustave Flaubert
