Point of View- Low Angle

Before photographing your subject, take time to think about where you will shoot it from. Our viewpoint has a massive impact on the composition of our photo, and as a result it can greatly affect the message that the shot conveys. Rather than just shooting from eye level, consider photographing from high above, down at ground level, from the side, from the back, from a long way away, from very close up, and so on.

Below is an example of how to improve your photo with a different viewpoint:

These images above are shot from the prone position allowing a lower point of view. When shooting animals this is a popular position as it adds strength to the subject. I like to use my Puffin Pad to support the lens and I think I have used it  in every possible position. I do not go shooting without my Puffin Pad. Puffin Pads are available from SGA Imaging or Hunt's Photo and Video.
