Weekly Photography Challenge Bird's Eye View

Weekly Photography Challenge Bird’s Eye View

Earlier I shared a collection of photos shot from above using a bird’s eye view. In the photography challenge last week you were assigned to photograph from a worm’s eye view or low down. This week you will be looking down, using the bird’s eye view to create your images.

Bird’s eye view

Bird’s are usually flying overhead or sitting up high on a wire looking down on us. So try something to get that kind of perspective in your image this week. Get up high and look down. That could mean:

  • Climb to a roof or the top of a hill and look down
  • Stand on a chair to photograph something on the floor
  • Just simply being aware of what is below your eye level and shoot that
  • If you really want to go for it take a hot air balloon, fly a quadcopter or GoPro, or even take a gondola ride

You get the idea right? Get up – and look down!

Share your bird’s eye view images here:

Simply upload your shot into the comment field (look for the little camera icon in the Disqus comments section) and they’ll get embedded for us all to see or if you’d prefer upload them to your favourite photo sharing site and leave the link to them. Show me your best images in this week’s challenge.

Here are some more  images to give you ideas:
