As photographers, we are constantly imagining, “What if?” What would our shot be like from this angle or that? What if the light were different, or if I used different settings or a different lens? But sometimes we let our imaginations run wild and end up with options that are probably impossible but great fun to think about.

Join in the fun!

Grab a friend and take a look at our list of favorite (and sometimes imaginary) photography “What if’s?” We promise your conversation will be a lively one!
