As photographers, we're often found shooting familiar subjects in everyday spaces. It's not uncommon for us to be found in some rather precarious positions from time to time as we invest ourselves in attempts to separate our images from the rest. Whether it's squatting down in the mud or climbing up a tree or a sketchy ladder, we do what it takes to get just the right angle to portray our subjects in the most appropriate way. In this short video, Photographer Ted Forbes talks about how shooting at a lower camera angle can help add depth and drama to your photographs.
Whether you're shooting street photography or portraiture, there is more than one way to skin a cat when it comes to changing the way the subject of your image is perceived. Doing so can mean the difference between a mediocre image and one that stands out above the rest. In this five-minute video about photography using low camera angles, Forbes, who is best known for his popular YouTube channel The Art of Photography, discusses ways that lighting, overlapping subjects, focal length, aperture, and camera angles can all be used to create the illusion of depth that our eyes are familiar with in your two-dimensional photograph.
