The Bigger Picture

In photography, perspective is essential.

It’s what recreates depth and dimensionality within a flat 2-dimensional print.

If done right, perspective sells products. It determines which sneakers you buy, or which glasses you’ll wear. Nobody wants to eat a flat looking hamburger.

Perspective gives tone, shadows and highlights. It makes us feel, smell, and taste what is not there. It really does sell.

Perspective also frames your reality. Like photography, perspective will add dimension to your life. It will give it depth, shadow and highlight. If you lack perspective then your life will become 2-dimensional.

Whenever my son would get into a stressful situation, I gave him this advice (which I took from Jocko Willink, ex US Navy Seal), “Relax. Look around. Make a call.”
