When approaching a scene it is so easy just to stand there and put your camera to your eye and snap a shot. But often the most impact can be made from a different angle. When looking to photograph a scene, look for a new angle that can completely change your image and make a common scene into a image with impact.
Try an angle such as worm’s eye view, shoot straight up, shoot from the hip, shoot from a high vantage point or with a tilt to give your image impact.
Shooting from different angles can also often help you reduce distracting objects in the background.
