Get Down or Get High

Getting down and getting high can have many meanings. I am speaking literally here, not of dancing or anything else that comes to mind.

When you are out shooting photos -- don't take them all at the same level. While looking for this famous NY Times photo of Ansel Adams, I found an interesting blog post by an artist. He chose to get high to get a better view.

Changing your point of view can always give you a new perspective on the composition. Even if you are still standing when you take all of your photos -- point the camera up or down. Stand over an object. Hold your camera under it. This mushroom photo shows an example of getting down or under.
