Kubrick // One-Point Perspective from kogonada on Vimeo.

I really loved this video essay about how Stanley Kubrick used 1 point perspective in his movies. 1 point perspective can be such a powerful tool in your images, especially when working on location. It naturally creates leading lines to a focal point, and if you put your subject in front of that focal point it can help build an incredibly strong image.

Challenge yourself! Next time you’re shooting figure out a way to use 1 point perspective and leading lines to bring the focus to your subject. You’ll be amazed at the results.
