Viewing Me

Depending on the Angle you are taking the picture from, can show many differences in the perspective of the photo. This can include something's like how one can view your facial expression and the background details. The two different photos that I chose were Bird's eye view and one of my choice. I really thought these two photos showed a lot of meaning to it, which was the reason why I chose them both. Every person can view things differently than another person. The perspective of a photo can show a lot and how one person can see it while many other people see something else. I think the perspectives of the photos I chose show two different backgrounds even though they may look similar to each other. Reason why is because they were taken in two totally different angles.

In the first photo, which was the photo I chose, I took a picture from a side view of my face and half of my body. In this photo you can see the structure of the side of my face better than the other photo. It kind of looks like I'm happy because you can see a little smile. Bedside’s that, as you can see my posture looks like I am kind of slouched; basically putting no effort into sitting up. I may look happy, but it seems like I’m not a great mood based off of my posture. You can also see some of my background in this photo which shows that I am in a room with many computers. It doesn't look like I am doing anything, but staring directly at something. One thing that I did notice that I thought was weird was how my left hand was formed. One of my fingers is sticking out and I kind of thought it was weird because I was unaware of me doing this while taking this photo. But to me this photo seems unusual yet mysterious because I cannot pinpoint my exact emotion.

            In the second photo which was from a bird's eye view you can see my facial expression from this angle much better than the first photo. My facial expression pops out more with this photo because you can see that I have a huge smile on my face do to the fact that you can see my whole face from a front view. With this photo my background does not show much, but the floor and the corner of a table along with some other items located on the floor like the neon blue backpack which pops right out when one sees this photo. I feel like this photo shows more emotion than the other photo, and that shows how the different perspectives can change how someone appears to look, whether it'd be sad, angry, or even happy.

From the Bird's eye view angle you can get a better look at me while in the other photo you can only see one side of my face which is hard to tell how my face looks. I really like these two angles because it showed to different sides of me. With Bird's eye view you can see my face and the front of my head better, but from a higher angle. In this photo I look even happier than the other photo because it is more noticeable, but with the other photo it appears like I am smiling, but you cannot really tell at the same time. Both photos can be similar if one sees it in that way, but people have to see behind the photo. Basically true to see if there is a story to it or analyze the photo so they can see what is going on. With my two photos there is not much going on, but it’s possible that there could be assumptions of what is going on in these

  1. Super inclusion about your smile details! What other details/aspects of yourself do you see?
