Wow, it has been a while since I last posted. And I hate reading blog posts that start like that. I'll try to work on that, but today I wish to talk about changing your perspective.
If you are tired of the same old looking shots? You are looking for something that is a bit more of a creative challenge? Want something that looks different? Change your perspective. Get down low, or get up high in the air. Try to look at the scene to get a different look. Consider wearing your camera at waist level and snapping a few pics. Or get on the ground for a worms eye view.
I was shooting my friend from her new website a couple of weeks ago. After I got the safe shots, I asked if she would pose her foot like that (stretching it out). Since she is tall (clocks in at 6 feet), and I used a wide angle lens the perspective shift draws your eye all the way up her let and into her face. The shadows lend to a bit of mystery.
