One of the simplest and yet most effective techniques to do this is to get right down low – flat on your stomach to take your shots.
This especially has impact when you use a wide lens and get plenty of the foreground in your shot.
I’ve been doing this a lot recently in photographing our baby (getting down on their level is a key rule in photographing babies) however it is a technique that can be used in virtually every type of photography.
Of course there are some costs to getting down low (making clothes dirty and embarrassment are two that come to mind) but these are small prices to pay for the type of shots you can end up with.
Try it – and post your results in this week’s ‘Get Down and Dirty’ Assignment in our discussion group.
