Food View from the Belt
Ever wonder what your food sees when you check out? Now you do. Enjoy.
Folks, we're about a quarter of the way through the year, so we thought we'd have a little rest and lie down.... well... not exactly. This week it's all about getting low... real low. So get ready to bend, squat, kneel or go full belly-hug on the ground. Getting low will allow you to explore the world from a different perspective, to capture unique and interesting shots that you wouldn't normally see from your usual standing height. You can find a point of interest, like a close-up shot of a flower, an interesting pattern on the pavement, or even a pet or child portrait from their level. You can also capture a wide angled scene more powerfully by getting a lower angle. In cinema, shooting a character from below is sometimes referred to as the "superhero angle" as it conveys this larger-than-life feel to the character. Pro tip: Look for leading lines on the floor, and use that to guide the viewer into the main focus of your frame.
