Tip of the Week: Don’t Just Stand


Did you know that almost 86% of the world’s photographs are said to be shot from a height of around five to six feet? After all, that’s the average human height and most of us don’t bother with finding a point of view that is different from our regular viewpoint. It doesn’t even strike us. Which is why, the simplest of changes in standing position can make a scene look different. So bend a little, raise your camera above your head or even lie down flat on the ground.

After all, a human perspective is what all of us see. What about a dog’s perspective? Or an ant’s? Or an eagle-eyed view?
