A change in perspective is always a good thing, especially when it comes to photography. Sometimes all it takes to go from “the same old thing” to something spectacular is to shoot from a viewpoint that people aren’t used to seeing. Of course a wicked sky and a little bit of post processing never hurts anything either, as you can see in this photo by Flickr user dogbert8u:
As a tall person (6’4″), I have a tendancy to always look down on things. I have to force myself to remember this while I’m shooting because some of the most interesting shots come from simply looking up. Look up!
