Vantage Point

'Five frames with the Olympus Pen EF, looking at the 3:4 image aspect ratio or portrait format photography'

Changing the vantage point of where you are taking the shot from, and the visual level you are at is not only a great way to enhance composition, it might make your photograph stand out from all of the other eye-level views made of a similar subject.

When you change the vantage point for a shot, for example, in the masthead image above, from an eye-level to a knee-level shot, you are literally bringing in leading lines from almost where you are, across the lake to the lung of green, which is back-dropped by giant monstrosities of concrete. The image, however, just misses out on not having a figure or two within its composition.

On the subject of the half-frame portrait format, with the vision constricted to that of a vertical, viewpoints can play a big part in giving impact to images. And of course, with the half-frame portrait frame shooter, where the camera is held in the normal horizontal position for portrait framing, changing your viewpoints to create more linearity or height in your perspectives is much easier than you think. Have a look at the images posted for a comparison of image impacts taken from differing viewpoints.
