Our challenge this week is to look at the world from a higher vantage point and shoot the world below. This type of photography is often referred to as 'bird's eye view' photography. We tend to shoot from either eye-level or pointing our cameras just slightly downwards. And yet there is an entire world of different and less-used camera angles to explore that will make your photographs even more interesting and unusual. For example, pointing your camera straight downwards! The exact angle of your camera compared to the world below, is up to you. And you also get to decide how high you are going to go up to shoot down. Consider standing on chairs, stepladders, your roof or using drones, tall buildings, aeroplanes to give you some height. Or just shoot down from right where you are standing! While you are up there, look for interesting shapes and patterns that you are usually not aware of when you are at eye-level with the subject. For example, the boxiness of buildings, the cute way that hair whorls on a someone's head or how a car is basically a rectangle on top of a rectangle. Entire new perspectives pop into view when you are shooting downwards. So go and seek them out in the familiar and not-so-familiar and show us a whole new world!
