Selecting an intriguing, less-than-obvious point of view is often the key to making great images, don’t you think?
In the above photographs, interesting patterns not otherwise seen are revealed by shooting from a high vantage point. Even just raising your camera over your head can produce some amazing images. Or by getting down beneath the scene and shooting upwards.
Nothing will improve your photography faster or make you appear more ‘creative’ than an imaginative viewpoint. And I suspect no other photographic technique is as neglected by the many of us producing pictures.
Think I’d best go find myself a tall building – and some kneepads! 🙂
