perspective …

It’s been a while since I’ve posted any photo tips, hasn’t it?  I’m long overdue!  So I am sharing one of my favorites – perspective.  As in, change it, get a different one.   We often get stuck in a photographic rut.   Like taking all our photos at eye level and aiming the camera.  For example, we all have photos of family and friends all lined up and smiling.  They don’t all have to look like that.  Sit on the floor, stand on a chair, aim your camera in a whole different direction.  You may find you love the results.

  1. I have been sick in bed the last few days, so my perspective has been from the horizontal. Great shot!

  2. Great advice Stephanie. Gorgeous image.

    It is much easier to photograph children in their natural habitat...not lined up with smiling faces. I love capturing my g'kiddo's in action. My favorites are those photos.

    but when the camera is up to your eye you just don't care!!

  12. Great tips Steph! I find myself always standing to take photos. Just sitting down or kneeling makes a huge difference.
