We all sat there bored in maths class as the teacher droned on about angles, thinking nothing could be less interesting and willing the clock to go faster. In photography angles are what makes it interesting.
If you’re having to photograph something as mundane as a sign, you can still create interesting images. Simply turn your camera on an angle and bring that boring object to life. Of course this doesn’t just apply to boring subjects.
Everybody sees the world differently and so try not to photograph everything from the same angle. If you have the luxury of time to photograph your subject, make sure you try out as many angles as possible. Not all angles will work and sometimes the one taken from straight on will be the best. So ensure you experiment with as many angles as you can, your images will be so much more interesting.
