Tips and Tricks

Consider your angle

   There is nothing more fun than finding an unexpected angle.  Shooting down from above can have stunning results, as can shooting from below.  Shooting from a high angle can be very flattering to the figure but be careful on who you use it on. If used in the wrong situation, it can make people look small and feeble.  Shooting from a low angle can give the impression of strength and power.  The angle at which you shoot helps you tell a story.  It is up to you to figure out what you want to say, then play around with the angle until you find what fits.
