Conventional wisdom often tells us to shoot standing up, generally at eye-level and holding the camera at a flat angle parallel to the ground.
But some of the most interesting photos defy convention. Some are canted at 45 degrees, some are from above and some, like the small angel statue shown here, are photographed with the camera hovering only a few inches from the grass.
The verdict? Don’t be afraid to put your camera in a place where the picture has the potential to look a little odd. You might just discover a new perspective that both you and your viewers will appreciate.
