2012 Workshop: Day 3

June 13th, 2012

We are currently running three workshop classes, including an early afternoon class at a drop-in center in the city’s bazaar. The center, run by the organization STEP, is for children as young as 6 years old, who work in the bazaar. Some work along side their families. Some are sent by their families to work. After a few days with these boys, I can tell you that they are bright, sharp, mature beyond their years… and also very kind.

On Day 3 we looked at perspective, and how we can change an image by altering our position relative to the subject. Walking the small alleys beside the commercial section of the bazaar, they had lots of opportunity to find the kind of lines that show depth and give a sense of space.

For fun, we also looked at forced perspective. They nailed it!

This post is going up a little late, as we had no electricity last night. Just another one of those small twists in running ONE-SHOT.
