Many novices also shoot from a horizontal angle, which makes the picture dull. So try shooting from a low angle. Since growing up, photographers have spent most of their time observing the world horizontally. They often use horizontally when shooting scenes. In fact, shooting from a low angle can bring excitement to the viewer's vision. Photographers may refer to the following tips for shooting from a low angle to see if they can bring a new feeling to your photography.
Low Angle Long Focus Lens Create Visual Impact
Viewing the World from a Low Angle
When taking pictures of children and animals, do you find that the images are not satisfactory? Have you ever thought about it because you're taking pictures from everyday angles? In fact, sometimes from low shooting, it will bring you a surprise, because this is the visual effect that people are less exposed to in daily life. However, low angle is not purely bottom-up shooting, shooting subjects close to the ground from a horizontal angle can also be considered as a low angle shooting!

Flexible thinking about shooting angle
Taking low angle as shooting angle does not mean advocating people to shoot at low angle blindly. It means that besides using daily angle, low angle shooting can also be considered to make photographers'works more diversified. For example, when shooting children and small animals, you can try to put down your body to take pictures at their level, so that the audience can see the world from their perspective.

Patience in composition
When shooting at low angles, if the photographer uses a general digital camera, it is more difficult to view and compose through the viewfinder, which undoubtedly tests the patience of the photographer. If the camera of the photographer has real-time display function, and even has a multi-angle display screen, it will be more relaxed when shooting!

Using Wide Angle Mirror Characteristics
Wide-angle mirror has a wide view angle and can accommodate more scenery. In addition, wide-angle mirror perspective deformation is obvious, and the object close to the lens is larger, on the contrary, the same is true. Photographers can mostly use the characteristics of wide-angle lens to shoot images with rich scenery and exaggerated effect. In addition, the wide-angle image can also facilitate the photographer to process the image in the post-shooting stage, for example, after the tailoring due to the correction level, it can still maintain the integrity of the subject.

Level of attention
Sometimes when shooting, it is difficult to determine the level of the picture because it is not necessarily able to take a direct view. Photographers can install external levelers for cameras. Generally, external levelers can be installed on flash boots of cameras. In addition, if the photographer's digital camera is equipped with an electronic level, you may wish to make more use of it. Of course, photographers can also process images through computers, but it takes time.
External level instrument can be added to the camera to ensure the picture level.
Careful handling of image exposure
When shooting, we should pay attention to the exposure of the image. If the contrast between the background and the main body is large, there will be insufficient exposure of the main body and normal exposure of the background (like silhouette); or if the main body exposes normally and the background exposes excessively (full white), for example, in cloudy days, the sky will often die white and there will be no layers, and the image will be taken. Rather boring. Therefore, when considering the shooting angle, the photographer should think carefully.
Attention should be paid to exposure compensation when shooting
Control aperture, focus highlighting subject
The aperture can control the depth of field and the focus can determine the clear position of the image. The flexible combination of the two and the appropriate composition can help the photographer to highlight the main body of the work.
Large aperture creates shallow depth of field effect
Photography is not only an art, but also a science. It takes different attempts and explorations to find the right angle to shoot. After you have seen this introduction, you may try to shoot from a new angle and explore the new world!
