Point of View

Not all photographs need to be taken from our eye level – nor should they.
Changing your viewpoint is not only a great way to enhance composition, but it might also make your photograph stand out from all of the other eye-level views made of a similar subject.
Use your freedom to your aesthetic advantage and make images from creative viewpoints.
