Create > Progressive Zoom

Create > Studio Activity: Progressive Zoom


Goal:  Create a progressive sequence depicting the magnification of a focal point.

Select a ‘still-life’ or place to serve as the subject for this progressive magnification composition.  Start by dividing your drawing paper into at least four (4) panels.  Beginning in the first panel, make a realistic drawing that shows the entire view of the subject.  In the next panel sequences, make a series of realistic drawings that captures you actually moving closer to the subject.  For the last panel create an image that is so zoomed in on it appears as if you used a magnifying glass.

Trigger Mechanisms:
Repeat, zoom, scale, combine


Paper, pencil, drawing board
