It may seem pretty apparent that in photography, just like any art that is meant to appeal to our sense of vision, the use of angles can be very important. But, while this notion might come across as obvious in some cases, there are number of ways to use angles that you may not have considered at this time.
Sure, making certain that the subject is positioned well to match the lighting that is available and noting that off-center images actaully tend to come across as more appealing are pretty common notions. But here are a couple that are a little less known if you will.
Tilted angles provide a new look
Not only do titled angles give a different and unique perspective but that can also produce greater levels of symmetry when your subject itself is somewhat tilted. For example, a subject tilted to from left to right can be balanced out with an angle going from right to left.
Shooting from above the subject
When working with people, especially women, shooting from above the subject brings out the softer and often more feminine features while minimizing those that are more harsh and rugged.
Shooting from a low angle
This can have the exact opposite effect as the one mentioned above. So, if you want to bring out the tough or hard features, this is your best approach.
