Take better photos by getting high!Sometimes, just a little height can transform a photo.
[ MUSIC ] ^M00:00:09 >> [Brian Cooley:] I'm Brian Cooley with a quick how-to on taking better digital photos by getting high. Not that way. One of the best tips for taking many kinds of pictures doesn't involve the settings on your camera at all, but where you are when you hold it. Get some altitude. When you raise your camera above the subject, it often opens up the photo with a lot of depth. The typical shot of an interior, for example, might look like this: flat, busy and compressed. But look around. Is there a staircase or some other elevation nearby? Head up there. Just gaining a few feet completely changes the photo of the same place, giving it depth, showing the relation and context of objects within it. So look around for a staircase or something like that. You'll find your photos improve. ^M00:00:52 [ MUSIC ]
