How to Work With High And Low Camera Angles?

Last Updated :

A change in perspective can bring a whole new feel to your photographs. Clicking pictures from the common and usual angles might not be as interesting as clicking it from a lower level or a higher one. With some basic knowledge about photography and composition rules you can actually create some unique and amazing pictures. There are many ways you can compose a picture. However, the creativity lies in how differently you compose it. Sometimes, the most simplest of photographs looks amazingly brilliant because it is composed differently and it stands out of the rest.

One such way to compose a picture differently is to shoot from varied angles. Sometimes a high or a low angle can give you an all new perspective of a subject. This is when your creative instinct has to work hard. Think of angles that can help you create better pictures. Surprise is an important spice to add flavors in life, and so is the case in photography. Photographing a subject from an unexpected angle is a simple way to add that spiced flavor in your pictures.

Most of us have a general tendency to photograph a subject from an eye-level, straight-ahead point of view. We look down on road, look up a tree, look out at sea. By exploring subjects from different angles can make your pictures look better and better. For example, look down from tree, look up the sea, look down the sky. This way you can actually create new and startling compositions. To do so you may have to crawl, jump, walk, climb or move around your subject. Although you may look funny and silly doing all this but getting to such vantage points will result in some amazing pictures.

Shooting from high vantage points can give you more clarity, for example shooting a busy street from the usual angle will only give you heads and faces making you photographs look crowded. But same scene when shot from a high vantage point can show vegetable carts, fruit crates etc. Similarly shooting from a lower angle will make tall things look taller than usual. Shooting Petronas Tower from below can look like a soaring tower of converging angles.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!
