3. Get closer with a wide-angle lens
Getting closer to your subject than you think you should with your wide-angle lens can yield surprising results.
4. Try different angles
Shots taken from straight on, as we’re conventionally used to taking them, aren’t as compelling as shots from various angles. Lie on your belly, stand up on a box and hold your camera over your head, try as many different angles as you can to get the right shot.
5. Position your subject off-centre
The subject isn’t meant to be smack dab in the middle of the frame. To get away from this, pro photographers use the “rule of thirds.” The rule refers to mentally superimposing a grid that is three high and three wide over your frame, then ensuring that your subject isn’t in the centre of the frame.
