Dramatic Angles or Lens Format

Sometimes it is fun to try a different angle, viewpoint or an extreme lens. By getting high and shooting down, getting low and shooting up, or using a wide angle or fisheye lens you can create a dramatic composition.

By going to the top of the vieweing platform and shooting straight down, my composition show a bunch of gators floating in the water. The only way to get their backs is to shoot this way, otherwise you get a more traditional portrait.
