    Get on the ground, walk around the object, or challenge yourself. we want to see the world differently, in a different perpective. this can open our eyes to new things around us. things we see everyday can become something new in the world of photography. POV can be challenging because the certain POV you want may not be easy to get to, or it might not be as good as you want it to be. i gained that, i should really look around my surroundings, open my eyes, move around the object and look at it differently then i normally would.

    A photographer can establich a point of view by putiing smoke or leaves in front of there subject.Another way is getting straight on the ground and taking a picture looking up. The last way is framing your subject. Photographers want to establish a unique point of view because it makes more people want to look at it. A challenging part of taking pictures in the”point of view” method is always finding a unique point of view. I learned that once you find a good point of view your picture will look much better and more pleasing to the human eye

    1.Take a photo with something between you and your focal point. Select a focal point in the image that is not too obvious to the eye. And take the photo from an unusual point.
    2. Taking a photo from a unique point of view makes the photo more interesting. And you get an entirely new view on the object.
    3. If you lack creativity it could be quite hard to get a unique photo. I learned that if you put something between you and your focal point it could make the photo more interesting.

    1) Getting down on the ground and looking straight ahead will change the scale of the scene, creating a new point of view, Obscuring your point of view, Framing your point of view with whatever is at hand.
    2) We want to provide a unique point of view because it offers a new perspective on the subject and its surroundings allowing for a new look at something we might’ve seen a thousand times before
    3) finding point of view can be difficult because it can be hard to find a new perspective that works well with a subject

    get low on the ground, look straight ahead, or get a different angle than a normal stance.
    we want to have a point of view so we can get a better feel of art. geting a point of view could be difficult if you don’t have a image of what you want.

    What are three ways that the article suggests the photographer can establish a point of view?
    Getting down on the ground and looking straight ahead, framing your point of view with whatever is at hand, and to try to approach your subject with an indirect point of view.

    Why do we as photographers want to establish a unique point of view? What are the benefits?
    Because it brings attention to where we want it to be, and it catches the eye of the person viewing the photo.

    What about Point of View can be challenging? What ideas did you gain after using this tutorial?
    It can be difficult to get a certain angle and it can also be difficult to find a different perspective that works with the photo. I learned that I should look at objects differently and see how I can make them be more unique and interesting and to take my time while taking photos.

    1. Choosing an “abnormal” point of focus
    2. Obscuring the view by putting something between you and your subject
    3. Getting on ground level
    We want to establish a unique Point of View because it has the benefits of making a photo more interesting or captivating. Point of view can be challenging can be challenging because it can be hard to get the camera to capture the image as well in the position, and it can be hard to get in the spots in order to get a unique point of view.

    2. Point of view isn’t just determined by our physical surroundings. It’s also the creative stance you take when you shoot.
    3. Challenges : Take a photo with something between you and your subject. Select a particular part of a subject. Snap a picture of a frequently photographed subject.
    I learned alot more about the angle to take the picture for POV from the turtorial.

    3 ways a photographer can use a good point of view is to get really high up, dont look straight at an image that is interesting, and get lower to the ground. reasons that a good point of view is important is because it creates awe and inspiration and can make a bland and flat image more interesting. it can be hard to get a good angle to get everything in the photo. i thought to look through something or not directly target an image.

    1. Three ways that the article suggests the photographer can establish a point of view are investigating the world, thinking about what you find beautiful, and not allowing convention to dictate an answer.
    2. Why we as photographers want to establish a unique point of view is so we can express or creativity. The benefits are, being able to show others our art and maybe inspire others.
    3. What about point of view that can be challenging is finding the best angle to take a certain photo. However ideas that I’ve gained after reading/using this tutorial is to think about where I point and focus when I take a photo.

    There are a few ways for someone to establish a unique point of view. You could add something between you and the subject, or look at something with an indirect point of view. It also helps to focus on certain parts of the subject, instead of the entire thing. Photographers want to establish a unique point of view because it adds interest to your work. It also makes you stand out among other photographers. The difficult thing about Point of View is just trying to imagine something that could be totally different. It’s also difficult to actually execute it correctly, even though it seems really simple. I got some ideas for my future POV shots, like adding something in between me and my subject, and focusing on something like the shadows of a different object than the actual subject.

    What are three ways that the article suggests the photographer can establish a point of view? One of the suggestions is to frame your POV with something else an object, smoke, trees anything to lighten up common objects. Another is having an undefined POV, leave the POV indirect by focusing on something that you normally wouldn’t. Lastly try to pick a common object usual object and make it interesting with a fresh POV.

    Why do we as photographers want to establish a unique point of view? What are the benefits?
    It gives something common or boring new light, it gives it a new perspective which can really change the meaning of what the photo is really about. It can put real interest into your photo.

    What about Point of View can be challenging? What ideas did you gain after using this tutorial?
    It can be challenging to really get a unique point to view your object but practice makes perfect.
    Something that i didn’t know before is to put an object in your photo a point of interest.

    1. chosing different focus points or different angles. taking a picture from the bottom of an object instead of the top. getting on the ground and taking a picture from that angle.
    2. Photos taken from a different point of view adds interest to your picture and makes it more pleasing to the eye. normal pictures dont catch the eye like pov pictures do. it also allows us to see the world ina different and unique way.
    3. a challenging part of pov can be finding an effective way to show a diffferent perspective that works with the photo and the surroundings. i learned how to find a good point of view.

    Three ways the tutorial suggests to establish an interesting point of view are to obscure your point of view, getting down on the ground, and to frame your point of view with the surrounding environment. As photographers we want to establish a unique point of view because it prevents you from generating a generic image, and instead makes the image more interesting. Point of view can be challenging because you really have to think outside of the box, so you can provoke people viewing your image by taking an image from a point of view that they aren’t used to.

    3 ways that the article suggests the photographer can establish a point of view are where you point and focus, obscuring your point of view, and framing your point of view. We want a unique point of view to have our photos recognized as original and to show how we can express our skills. Point of view can be challenging because it could be hard to come up with an original idea. I learned that you can take unique point of views using framing and approaching the subject from an indirect point of view.

    Ways a photographer can establish new p.o.v. photos is by getting down on the ground, trying to approach from an indirect p.o.v., and investigating the world. Point of view is important because it gives not only another perspective but also an ostensibly wider net of ideas. Finding a unique model will be the most challenging. I now can take a unique picture of a lamp post, which is kind of hard to say.
