More ways to improve your fishing photos. This time about getting down to the level of your subject, kneeling, getting close to the water, getting a great perspective.
How about a face?
What did the fish look like?
Where's the horizon?
How did the place look?
By kneeling down next to the angler you get all this and more.
- If you are photographing a standing person, bend your knees to get just a bit lower.
- If you are photographing a kneeling person, kneel and bend even further down.
- If you are photographing a person lying down, your camera needs to be on the ground.
Always take some pictures where the camera is lower than your subject.
But remeber to be careful with your low photos, particularly if you use a wide angle lens. The perspective can sometimes become too distorted and result in bodies and faces, which look odd.
The opposite is the case with telephoto lenses. The low stance will almost always give a great perspective to the image. By getting the horizon low and isolating the subject against the sky or background you can get a lot of ambience into your image.
