This week my tip is to try changing your perspective when you take a picture. Instead of standing in front of your subject, straight on, change it UP!
Move around your subject. Stand above or squat low. Try it out! See what you get.
I quite often will shoot something from two different angles, not sure which one I will like better until I see on my computer screen.
(Please excuse the iPhone 5 photos, but not too shabby for night shots!)
Here I am in front of NC State bell tower after a big win over Carolina this past weekend.
It’s a great snap (thanks honey!) and one that I will enjoy forever.
However, notice the top of the bell tower is chopped off. No big deal, but look at the difference in my photo of him.
I bent my knees to get lower, to include the top of the bell tower in the snap :
Doesn’t it feel more powerful & a bit awe inspiring with the clock view?
(I wished at that moment I had my big girl camera, but again, snapshots ARE important).
My challenge to you is this. Next time you take a photo, try changing your perspective!I’d love to hear and see what you get – email me or send me a link to your Flickr or whatever you use to share your photos!
I will follow up with more tips (and better photos!) on perspective, as I really feel this is a big part of unveiling your own creativity 🙂
I am still looking for future tips, so PLEASE leave me a comment with something you’d like to hear about! Please? ha ha!
Have a great day~
