Perspective

The Picture Collection’s Perspective folder currently contains 54 images.  Ranging from international cityscapes to fine art photography, these images are sure to help any cartoonist or animator in nailing down those difficult perspective shots, as well as photographers and filmmakers in broadening their eye.  The folder contains an array of editorial photographs from magazines (past and present) and even a few ‘magic eye tricks’ and diagrams from psychology books.  Overlooked and underestimated–this folder is sure to give your eye some interesting… perspective!
