"We create frames for what we experience, and they both inform and limit the way we think."1
To begin our explorations with reframing, we invite you to take part in this introductions activity. Please introduce yourself by sharing two photos. They should be of the same scene: a person, place or thing that is part of your daily life.
In the first photo, show us the whole scene in its entirety. In the second photo, take the focus in closer, showing us one part of the scene, or capture the scene from a different perspective. If it helps your reframing process, before you take the second
photo, create a viewfinder with your fingers and scan the scene for your new perspective. Look at the pieces of the scene as opposed to the whole. (Hint: The last two Step 1 resources on the Background and Research page will give you more inspiration to complete this activity.)
Share your two photos with us by adding a new discussion topic to this forum and including them in your post. (Tip: If you know how, reduce the size of your photos before sharing - perhaps 300-400 pixels wide at most). Add in a brief detail or two about why your scene is meaningful to you and what insight you may have gained from shifting your perspective. (And if you’d like to share more with us about who you are and where you work, etc, please update your Moodle profile and/or include one extra tiny paragraph in your post.)
