Do you want to transform your iPhone photography from ordinary to extraordinary? One way to accomplish this is to change your perspective or choose a different vantage point when you compose a picture. In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to move away from the standard practice of shooting from eye level. With these seven perspective photography tips you’ll discover new and exciting ways to capture the world around you, making your iPhone photos far more interesting and unique.
1. Shoot From A Low Angle
Shooting from a low angle is probably the most popular alternative to eye-level perspective photography. It can be challenging because you may have to squat, sit, kneel or lie down to capture your image. It’s worth the effort because it provides an out-of-the-ordinary look at your subject and the results can be stunning.
Start by identifying your subject, then find a low angle to shoot from. You might even want to place your iPhone on the ground for additional support. You can use leading lines, like the rails in the image above, or anything in the foreground to draw the viewer into your image.
Alternatively, try positioning your subject in the foreground with the background out of focus. To set the focus point just tap on your screen where you want to direct the viewer’s attention, then take the picture.
Let your creativity run wild with this unique perspective. Hover your iPhone over puddles to capture reflections, set it on sand, grass, dirt or concrete – anywhere you want that will provide a low-angle look.
