Canon Australia Explores the Idea of Perspectives in ‘Decoy’

What goes through your mind when you have your camera raised, lens focused on a person in front of you? How many truths can there be in one photograph?

Leo Burnett Sydney’s latest work for Canon Australia challenges the notion of “the camera never lies.” “Decoy” is the first video from a new content series, “The Lab,” that will showcase six different photography experiments. The remaining five videos will roll out over the next month.

“Decoy” exceeded more then 2.2 million views on YouTube in just six days and has set the industry abuzz. The video captured a portrait session with a twist and plays on the idea of perspectives, especially of the people behind the camera. Six photographers were engaged in this experiment. It shows that sometimes how you approach the subject affects the story you tell.

"A photograph is shaped more by the person behind the camera than by what's in front of it," Canon concludes. In proving this, the company hopes to shift an artist's creative thinking and the power of the role he or she plays when behind the lens.
