Try Lowering Your Camera Angle

Copyright Scott Bourne 2010 - All Rights Reserved

Simple tip today: Try moving the camera height to get a different look with your photography.Whether I am photographing birds or babies, I often find that a low camera angle can have a stunning impact on the resulting image.

Especially when photographing animals, eye-level shots are more exciting. There are other benefits. I was able to eliminate distractions in both the foreground and background by using this angle. A low angle is helpful for separating the subject from the background.

You don’t need to make every shot at five feet, six inches. Get low and see what happens.
