I’ve been thinking a lot about perspective lately. Perspective is the way you see something. In photography, perspective is the angle at which you photograph a subject, and shooting from above or below or across can make for interesting photos, as can extreme close-ups and distances shots.
Perspective is also the way you see yourself and others, and it’s something you can change. If all your notice is your weight or failures, you are likely to feel pretty bad about yourself. Changing your perspective – your view of yourself or others – can change your whole attitude toward yourself or others. Look for a feature you like. This could be your eyes, your hair, your smile – or it could be something inside, such as your outlook on life.
Some things I like to notice about people: their smiles, their manicures, their shoes.
