It's hard for us to believe that we're halfway through 2019 already! We'd like to say a huge congratulations to everyone who's reached this big milestone with their 365 project - you guys rock!

Also, we'd like to thank everyone for their entries into last month's “Movement” theme. As always, you have submitted some incredible photographs and choosing just six finalists was tricky - if you have a minute (or several) check out all the entries here.

As always, you can view the six finalists and vote for a winner below, but first we want to introduce July’s theme - "Perspectives".

Following from a variety of topic and technique based themes this year, we'd like to pull some of these skills and challenges together and encourage everyone to have fun with thinking outside the box - by looking at the world from new perspectives.

Below we've pulled together four of our favourite ideas and previous themes from years gone by:

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 @sjoblues 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 this simple yet effective shot by @salza.

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. 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!

These fantastic shots by @kareenking and @mona65 really caught our eye!

Whether you decide to focus on, we hope you have fun experimenting with new ideas and techniques. We can’t wait to check out your entries!


How to enter this month’s theme

When uploading your photos use the tag section (on the edit/organise screen) and insert this week's theme tag: theme-perspectives.

Entry Guidelines: Photos must be your own and must have been taken and uploaded between Monday July 1st and Wednesday July 31st. 6 finalists will be chosen in the first couple days of August, then you get to vote for the winner in the following month!


Vote for a Winner of June's "Movement" Theme

As always, we had so much fun looking through all your entries for the “Movement” theme. It looks like lots of 365ers have been enjoying the Northern Hemisphere summertime and have been up to lots of cool things! I know we always say it, but it really was difficult to choose just 6 finalists.

Now it's over to you guys to cast your votes for the Movement theme. To cast your vote, just reply to this blog post with the number (in digit form) of the photo you would like to see win, before July 14th. We’ll announce the winner in a separate post shortly after!
