    Default June 2009 Photography Assignment - Shooting from a low angle or P.O.V

    I was thinking that taking a photo from a low point of view (P.O.V.), a sort of ant's eye view so to speak might be interesting. It is summer now so crawling around on the ground won't be too bad of a thing.

    Just an idea, if someone has some others, jump in.

    I quite like that idea "shooting from a low angle or low p.o.v".
    It will force people to shoot differently.

    any other ideas?

    thx - Marko

    this is not 'friendly' for very senior citizens like me.

    I'm still up for "action" or "movement" if anyone else is.

    keep em coming - the topic with the most support wins.

    Thx
    Marko

    I like the low angle POV... You do not have to get on your hands and knees to get a low angle POV

    I think the camera just needs to be lower than the subject.


    How about

    Raw emotions. Like anger/hate/saness/despair/joy. It may be hard but it could be quite interesting to see how people make out.

    I would show you ______ if you came to visit me. You just have to see this.

    The body (after seeing shots of a woman and toes ) Pick a part and shoot away!

    I would vote for raiven's idea "low point of view" - that should be interesting.

    Shooting from a low angle or low point of view has the most support so that's the theme for this month's assignment.

    Merging suggestion posts and changing the thread title now.
    Ok then - who is posting first

    OK...I'll start off...
    I laid on the ground on my belly and took this shot low angle last week. I liked the idea of a sea of yellow.....even if they were weeds!

    Default Victory!

    Here's another one I'm throwing into the mix. It's a memorial dedicated to WW1 soldiers. I wanted the shot to reflect the time in history...hence the sepia.

    Casil I like especially the last one because of the colours!

    And here is my hard piece of work. More than an hour I was kneeling/lying on our footpath to get some close shots from this “Bee wolf” (it is an earth wasp digging wholes in sandy ground). It was 28 °C in full sun and I’ve got nearly sunburned .

    Whenever our traffic is diverted I went past this green grassed feild and saw this lonely dead tree just stuck in the middle. and each time I went past it I swore to my self I would go there and take some pictures when I had the time and the petrol. Eventually I got there and this grass came up to my waist!
