@tapsamai wow that's interesting! thanks for the tip, definitely will keep that in mind in the future :)
@leecatlee @takashi02 did you know that the angle also determine a lot the meaning of the photo? For example in this photo, when you get down to the children level, you give the friendly capture. But if you take the photo from top down, it give the dominace feeling (From the viewer to the photo) And if you take the photo lower than eye leve, it give the domiance feeling to the subject :) I dont know if you could clearly understand my point
wow this is an awesome tip like @leecatlee said I also forget to do this as well.
thanks! i often forget that i can bend down, sit, satnd up on things, etc. when i'm taking pictures instead of just taking photos just standing up to grab cool angles....changing the angles can really make a difference!
