Tip 3: Get down low


Getting down low with your camera and looking for a new viewpoint can add variety and impact to your photos. It may help your subject stand out against a clear sky instead of a cluttered background or show it from a more unusual or unexpected angle. Try getting down to the eye level of children or animals for a glimpse into how they view the world. You can also get some spectacular images of reflections in puddles if you don’t mind stooping right down and leaving people wondering what on earth you are doing!

Here are some examples. All these images were taken from a very low viewpoint:
