vanishing point pictures

Playing with perspective in your images can be a very valuable asset. You may have experimented with it before if you’ve taken a drawing class. In an image, if an object is far enough away, it will eventually appear as though it has vanished. The point where the vanishing occurs is called the #VanishingPoint. Understanding how this concept is applied in drawing can also help us capture images with interesting compositions in photography

One of the most common uses of vanishing points is images that capture roads continuing off into the distance, where, despite the fact that the sides of the road are parallel, they look as though they are coming together in the picture.

Today, we want you to capture vanishing points, either by drawing them or by taking pictures that highlight them as a theme. Submit your images with the hashtag #VanishingPoint and we’ll feature our favorites tomorrow in the app!
