Wow. How the world can change in just a month is mind-blowing. Writing March's theme just 31 days ago from our home in Vancouver, BC, we never could have imagined how much, and how fast, our day-to-day life would have shifted.

Ross and I sincerely hope everyone in our community is safe and are staying healthy, and sane, during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our thoughts are with everyone as we all navigate through this trying time.

Despite all the worry and challenges, our hearts are bursting with pride at the way the 365 community is playing a big part in helping each other cope with everything from the scariest of realities to the most mundane moments in our newly restricted lives. You guys are phenomenal!

Thank you to everyone who managed to participate in March's “Depth of Field” theme. It's been a huge treat to look through your photos. Scroll down to view our six finalists and vote for a winner! (You can also check out all of March's entries here.)

And now, we'd like to introduce our next theme. It feels somewhat fitting that the topic we've lined up for April is "Perspectives".

Much like how our day to day lives are taking on a whole new perspective, we'd like to encourage everyone to have fun with thinking outside the box - by looking through your lens from new perspectives, while socially distancing, of course.

Below, we've pulled together some inspiration from our favourite ideas from years gone by, but please remember to stay safe.


1. Look Up & Down

We've had some incredible theme entries for shots that look directly up, at epic skyscrapers and fluffy clouds, or look down, into spiral staircases or people's eyes as they look back up at the camera.

We love these spectacular shots by @graemestevens and @pistache.

2. Get High & Low

This might sound simple, but it can be astonishingly effective. Getting low down for a shot is both perfect for getting at the same level as pet portraits, or to make your subject look bigger and more powerful.

Getting high can also create dramatic and dream-like photographs, whether it's from a rooftop garden or a mountain peak, both urban and rural settings can look incredible!

We love these cool examples by @annika82 (the steep hike paid off!) and @projectx!

3. Have Fun with Forced Perspectives

While it might be associated with cliché holiday photos, we LOVE a fun-filled forced perspective shot. You'll can play with funky features and strong structures, or even create the perfect setting at home!

We love these simple yet effective shots by @salza and @domenicododaro.

4. Shoot Through Something

While we might not always appreciate a rainy day, shooting through a rain-speckled pane of glass can make for some really interesting shots! As can using fisheye lenses, shooting through glass with patterns and colours, or even through fabrics for interesting silhouettes!

Some of our 365ers have endless fun playing with glass spheres, like @lyndemc.

5. Get on Their Level

Many of us will be spending a lot more time at home and with the family, so why not have some fun with getting on the same level as your little ones or furry friends!

We love this example by @ericaleigh.

6. Play with Reflections

Using water or mirrors to create perfect symmetry or an illusion of seeing double (maybe multiple) can turn the mundane into the mesmerizing! An easy type of perspective photography to play with, it's perfect for trying out and about or inside the home!

This adorable shot by @kareenking really made us smile!

Whatever you decide to experiment and play with, we hope you have fun trying new ideas and techniques. If you're going to look for opportunities outside, please remember to avoid busy areas and follow local guidelines on social distancing. Stay safe and healthy, and we look forward to checking out your entries next month!
