Take Better Photos With the Camera You Already Have- Tip #4: Perspective

Several months ago I gave a workshop on how to take better pictures with the camera you have. (You don't necessarily need to go out & buy a better camera to improve your photos!) I thought it would be something worth sharing here, so I'm going to share it in parts. Each Friday I'll share another part. If you have any photography-related questions that you'd like to see me answer, feel free to leave them in the comments
(or e-mail me). Perhaps I could do a post on a subject you're curious about.


Tip #4: Perspective

Switch things up by changing your perspective!

1. When you’re taking photos of children, try getting down on their eye level.
It makes for a more interesting photo.


2. Get Low or High: We call it a “bird’s eye” or a “worm’s eye” view. Move your body!
Try looking up at your subject, or down on them.



3. Try taking a photo of the side or the back of your child (whether that’s posed, or while they’re busy with something)


I hope you'll have some fun playing with your perspective when you're taking photos of your kids this week!
