Explore the world from different perspectives

This month is all about seeing life from fresh points of view. Come and share in our story of two Russian adventurers, Vadim and Vitaliy, who spend their lives exploring the world's most fascinating cities from breath-taking angles.

When it comes to your own photos, offering a different perspective isn't about climbing buildings to capture something from a different angle. It's about telling a story through fresh eyes and evoking new emotions. This can be achieved by creating a mood, expressing ideas or telling a story through your photos.

Ideally, your image should make an impact on a viewer who is seeing it for the first time.

You can express ideas through composition. For example, you could show the contrasts in a busy city shot by focusing on somebody quietly meditating on a subway platform. Or you could get low down to shoot the feet of a crowd of commuters to express a different perspective on your daily journey to work. Check out our tutorials to learn more.

Creating a unique perspective can also be achieved by experimenting with colour. Read on to discover how colour can shape the way we see things and add new shades of magic to your photography.
