Facebook Pixel Weekly Photography Challenge Worm's Eye View

Weekly Photography Challenge Worm’s Eye View

This week I rounded up a bunch of images taken low to the ground, otherwise known as worm’s eye view. It’s not a common view that people see, so images you create shot from this angle have a unique look and pique interest with viewers. Your job is to take on this low down task and shoot from the ground level. Here are some examples for you:

There’s no special equipment needed to do this, or magical subject matter. Even the most ordinary objects can be made to look interesting when photographed from the worm’s eye view. So it’s your turn.

Weekly photography challenge – worm’s eye view

So get down on your hands and knees, don’t be afraid to get dirty, and get as low to the ground as you can (and still be able to get up again). You might find things down there you haven’t noticed before, perhaps even in your own home or back yard. Like macro photography that makes you look for tiny subjects, getting down on the ground has a similar benefit and you start to see things you’d otherwise miss. Give it a try.

Share your worm’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:
