And now, for the first challenge of the year:

my lifes photos challenge

 

 

It’s easy to just take photos head on. But in this near year, try mixing up your perspective. Try shooting from above.

In this photo, I was standing in a chair to get my son opening up his gift. With children, this empasizes the smallness of them and is a parent’s perspective.

It can also be used creatively when you want to tell a story.

Taking a photo from above can also be effective when taking a portrait of a child. In this next photo, I was standing up while he was sitting on the floor.

    I like taking photos from above to tell the story. I do that with my kids all the time. They usually throw me off when they look at me and say “cheese!”. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m definitely going to experiment more taking pictures from different angles. I usually take them head as well, but I’m all about switching it up.

      Yes switch it up! You’d be amazed at what a different perspective can do for a photo!
