Professor Alice P. Gast shakes the hand of a Medicine Graduate on the stage at the Royal Albert Hall, while a spectator in a Niqab watches on from the left of the picture.
It’s quite challenging to come up with new angles on this very well covered event…
A fisheye lens has been used here to force an impossible perspective bringing all the elements of the spectator in the box, the grand hall, and the stage together.
The distortion also creates some wonderfully organic flowing ‘leading lines’ in the image, making it very easy for the viewer to be guided as intended.
The original image along with the others from this set, are on the image library here.
What is a ‘leading line’?
