Forced Perspective
An image in which the use of optical illusion makes the subject of the image appear farther away, closer, larger or smaller than it actually is. (Forced perspective manipulates human visual perception through the use of scaled objects and the correlation between them and the vantage point of the camera).
Generally speaking, forced perspective photography is when a photographer takes advantage of depth perception and careful placement of a camera to give the viewer the impression that an object is larger, smaller, closer, or farther away than it actually is. While many think this art form is limited to humorous photography, there are plenty of practical applications. You might be able to pull off a piece impromptu, but the best shots take time to both set up and capture. In some cases, you may have to wait for one object to move into position, such as the moon or sun. In other cases, you may have to coach a person into just the right spot. Try different camera angles to see what looks best, but do not forget to take several photographs of each version of your shot. Several photographs in several different positions will better insure that you pull off that perfect shot.
Roadscapes
A view or perspective provided by a road or roads: an artistic interpretation of a road or roads.
Treat it as landscape photography. Look at roads, paths and tracks a little differently. We notice the nuances of undulation, the tipping point of turns and with each climb, we relish the descent.
Consider traveling on smaller roads and back roads, first of there isn't much of traffic and secondly the scenery is absolute wonderful. Roadscape photography at its finest.
Open
Any Subject that us treated pictorially, embodying the elements of good design, arrangement or composition, which reflects the personal interpretation of the photographer.
Photographers can do great photography anywhere; however, it sometimes can take a little inspiration to get the wheels turning. The most important thing is to walk out the door frequently. If you think you are not going to capture any interesting images then you are not going to walk out the door.
Take a long walk, anywhere, at any time, and challenge yourself to capture an interesting image.
As an “Open” subject try to challenge yourself to explore topics and genres that you don’t normally venture into.
