I am a huge fan of shooting from head on but it is fun to spice up your photos by shooting from different angles. Sometimes you will be able to tell a better story by shooting from a different angle. Here are a few angles to try out to add interest to your photos. Remember you can do these even if you don’t have a fancy camera.
- No.01Get down on your subject's level.
This is extremely important if you are shooting children. Megan talked about this when she wrote the lesson on creating a photo essay. You don’t want to have all the pictures of your kids from your angle.
- No.02Below your subject.
This can be a bit of a challenge but Janell of Janell Hughes Photography has a wonderful example of this angle. She was playing “airplane” with her daughter and took this photo. Isn’t it lovely??
- No.03Above your subject.
- No.04From behind.
- No.05Over the shoulder.
- No.06Lay on your stomach.
