Point of view

Point of view in photography refers to the position from which the photographer takes the photograph. It can greatly influence the final image and the message it conveys. By changing the point of view, photographers can create different moods and emotions in their images. For example, a low angle can make a subject appear larger and more powerful, while a high angle can make a subject appear smaller and more vulnerable. Point of view can be altered by changing the photographer's position or by using different equipment, such as tripods or drones. Understanding and using point of view effectively is an important skill for photographers who want to create powerful and impactful images.
