Camera Angles: Shoot High, Shoot Low
Depending on the subject or lighting conditions, the elevation from which you choose to photograph your subject will need to be adjusted accordingly. For example, if you’re creating a portrait of a person, shooting from a low angle will create an awkward result as you’ll be looking up nostrils. But if you’re making full figure pictures of people, as in the accompanying image, more drastic changes in elevation can work successfully. The shot of the person with the umbrella was made on a snowy day from the roof of a three story garden apartment. The image of the turtle was made with the camera placed squarely on the ground at the same level as the turtle.
