Fox in Focus:

Seeing photos from a different perspective

Lloyd Fox

Most of society views the world at eye level. One of the best ways to make images more compelling is to look for opportunities to change your perspective and see things differently from the way everyone else does.

Whether it's shooting from the ground or finding an elevated position, a change in perspective is a great way to enhance your photography. Using a low angle to photograph a subject can help in a couple of ways. First, it will often help eliminate distracting background noise, like people or objects that are not helping support your photograph.

Second, the subtle change in angle will sometimes catch the viewer’s eye and force them to take a second look at the photo, because it's not how they are accustomed to seeing things. Most importantly, changing perspective and working all possible angles when photographing any subject will help you stay sharp and keep you thinking creatively.
