Shooting at eye level

Our normal habit when shooting is to just raise the camera to our eye and snap the picture.  But what can make for a more interesting photograph is changing the position of the lens in relation to the subject.

Shooting from below tends to make the subject more powerful.  Shooting from above makes them less so.  The photograph shown here is a good example of how bringing the camera down to eye level of the subjects make the photograph more intimate and engaging.

Next time you are shooting, try shooting from directly above, or from ground level.  You'll find altering the camera position can yield some wonderful surprises.
