Answers:

  1. Photographing from unique angles and perspectives can improve your photography by showing the viewer a different view they are not used to, and it can make the photograph look better.
  2. I believe the 4th worm’s eye view photograph was more successful because I took my time with it and I loved the colors and how the trees/lamppost look from that angle.
  3. One element I would change if I could would be space. I used a lot of positive space which makes the picture look crowded, so I’d like to change that.

Eye Level is the least engaging perspective because it’s a view we all see every second in our daily lives.

When you’re outside, you should be using your time wisely and take photographs for your assignment. You should not be on your phone when you’re outside because it’s “instructional time.”
