Unlock 4 camera angles
The shooting angle of the photo is very important and is one of the important factors in determining the composition of the picture. The camera angle directly affects the audience’s viewing psychology, and the visual effects produced by different angles of the lens are also completely different, which can not only determine the nature of the picture, but also a tool to tell a story. By changing the angle of the shot, from low to high, front to side, horizontal to oblique, you can also change the overall feel of the photo.
- High Angle
Shooting from a high angle requires a ladder or overhead equipment, and when you shoot from a high angle, it puts the viewer in a dominant position and gives your subject a feeling of vulnerability. This can make your subject look small or weak, or suggest something more tense.
Looking down on the camera can also give a feeling of intimacy, sometimes bordering on voyeurism. Think of photographing a young family from the lawn overhead, the beach or even the bed. Swap the young family for a couple and you have a different picture.
High angles, especially high-altitude shots, are great for food photography, showcasing the plate or everything on it and helping keep distractions out of the background. It can also give the viewer a sense of place, allowing them to imagine their surroundings.
- Low Angle
When you bow your head, you put your subject in a dominant position, making them appear powerful, controlling, or even aggressive. They look down on the audience and work for it. It is suitable for children and adults to emphasize their confidence. This kind of picture is generally used for the shooting of character scenes, which looks tall and heroic.
Shooting tall buildings from a very low angle is an effective way to get everything into the shot and to emphasize how big it is. It’s also an easy way to keep passersby away from your photos without having to bypass traffic in search of the best spot to stand!
Worm’s eye views, when you get right down onto the ground and shoot upwards, can create beautiful and evocative horticultural images as well as give a strong sense of place.
3.Eye Level Shot
Head-up lenses place the subject and viewer on the same plane, so they remain equal. Neither side is dominant and can make for very intimate photos. Think about it: you’ll look into each other’s eyes.
When you’re photographing subjects that are smaller than you, for example, children or animals, it can be easy to shoot them from above simply because you’re taller than they are. It’s much better to get down on your knees and bring yourself to their eye level. You’ll get a much more natural and intimate image.
4.Dutch Angle or Dutch Tilt
When you change the angle of the camera to shoot at 45º instead of a perfectly horizontal horizon, you are shooting with a Dutch tilt or Dutch angle.
This change in angle is great for suggesting fun, movement, excitement, and speed, as if you’re racing to keep up with your subject. You can also use it with a more sinister feel, suggesting that something isn’t quite right and unsettling your audience. Such images can sometimes reveal comical, elusive emotions.
Different photography angles can convey different emotions. Choosing an appropriate photography angle can vividly express the subject space, which also has a great relationship with the shaping of characters. Of course, there is no good or bad photography angle, and the most important thing is to choose the angle that suits the subject.
