It’s a Matter of Scale and Perspective

Sometimes just changing ones perspective is all it takes. Laying down on the ground and shooting up towards your subject will render the ordinary in an extraordinary way. Instead of shooting from eye level, or down at your subject, try shooting up. You’ll find that this worm’s eye view can add strength to your portraits, posing them in a tall and slender fashion.

In this image, I am shooting from the base of a hill as the crowds pass by my camera. I sat and waited for the right moment, when the kites, the crowds and the clouds were in alignment.
