Photo Composition Tip - Point of View

Before photographing your subject, take time to think about where you will shoot it from. Our viewpoint has a massive impact on the composition of our photo, and as a result it can greatly affect the message that the shot conveys. Rather than just shooting from eye level, consider photographing from high above, down at ground level, from the side, from the back, from a long way away, from very close up, and so on.

For this photo i wanted to capture the eiffel tower and the building behind. From street level on the bridge crossing the river it was too busy. I think I captured a much more impactful photo when i went back, put on a longer telephoto and climbed up a few flights in a building that was behind me.
