TSRC Challenge 2

Welcome to the second challenge for the Teen Summer Reading Challenge

From July 11th to July 24th, we want you to embrace your inner photographer and experiment with forced perspective! Submit your forced perspective photos by July 24th to earn two points towards the grand prize draw.

What's forced perspective photography? Think of all those travel pictures every tourist takes. You know the ones, pinching the top of the Eiffel towers, or holding up leaning tower of Pisa. 

These pictures are manipulating the space between subjects to make some objects appear unusually large or small, (or closer or farther apart) than normal. They create illusions with unexpected relationships between the people or objects in a picture—like, for instance, clouds looking like steam coming out of a teapot! 

This is your chance to play around with perspective. Maybe a person is really small, or really big, compared to something else. Or perhaps someone is standing on top of an unusual object. Need some inspiration? Try searching Pinterest or google for forced perspective photos. 

Send your photos to programs to programs@marigold.ab.ca with the following information:

  • Your forced perspective photo(s)
  • Your name
  • Your age
  • Your home library
  • Your TRAC Library Card number
