2. Photography Perspectives


When it comes to photography or filmmaking, the angle of your shot can make all the difference in how your audience perceives the subject matter. There are three main perspectives to consider: eye level, bird's eye view, and worm's eye view.

Eye-level shots are taken from the perspective of a person standing and looking straight ahead. This is the most common perspective and is often used to create a sense of intimacy and familiarity between the viewer and the subject. Eye-level shots are especially effective when you want to capture facial expressions or emotions.




Bird's eye view shots are taken from a high angle, looking down on the subject. This perspective is often used to show the subject in their environment or to provide a sense of scale or context. Bird's eye view shots are also useful for creating a sense of drama or tension, as they can make the subject feel small and vulnerable.




Worm's eye view shots are taken from a low angle, looking up at the subject. This perspective is often used to create a sense of power or dominance, as it can make the subject feel larger and more imposing. Worm's eye view shots are also useful for capturing objects or subjects that are high up or out of reach.





Choosing the right perspective for your shot can greatly enhance the mood and message of your content. By understanding the differences between eye level, bird's eye view, and worm's eye view, you can take your photography or filmmaking to the next level.
