Tip of the Week: Towering Subjects


Do you remember what it felt like when you were a child and would look up at all the adults around you? They looked like towering giants! Now, you can use this experience to make a subject seem towering and huge, regardless of its actual height and size.

By shooting impressive monuments, apartment buildings, or even a child and flowers—you can make your viewers feel like they are looking up at your subject. Do not be afraid to move in closer and ‘look up’. Experiment with subjects as varied as wheels of automobiles, signposts, doors, windows and even video game machines— you will instantly find a looming giant lurking within.
