Get down low to give your photo a different perspective and emphasis 

Photographing from near the ground can

  • make your subject seem more heroic or strong
  • hide distracting backgrounds
  • create leading strong lines (eg tall buildings or trees)
  • give the perspective of a child or small animal
  • add some interest in the foreground of a landscape shot (eg rock, flower or grass)

You don’t actually have to be on the ground yourself. You can place your camera on the ground and use a remote shutter release.

Here are some great examples and tips:

Thanks to the committee for this suggestion.

You have until next Tuesday to upload your image to Cluster. Members have all been sent an invitation to join and most have done so already. If you have any trouble feel free to email Esther. We also encourage you to leave encouraging comments for other members.

I would love to receive your suggestions/requests for future challenges. Please leave them as a comment under the challenge notification in Cluster or Facebook.

We will also post this competition on our “Friends of BCC” Facebook group so our friends can still participate by sharing their images on Facebook.
