A Lower Perspective is the #PetPhotographyChallenge for week four. This week my photo was finally chosen by MY photographer! It’s about time! This weeks challenge is one of composition since last week’s challenge was technical.
What is A Lower Perspective?
It is simply shooting your photo from down below, aiming your camera upwards toward your subject. In my photo I was on the bottom of the slide at the park, and my photographer was lying on her back on the ground to really get down below me.
Why use A Lower Perspective?
- The angle/perspective one uses to take a photo creates different feelings and looks. I look larger than life in my photo from below.
- Different angles create variety. If one always shoots from straight on, photos are boring. Try switching things up with a different side angle, from up above, or down below.
- Photos taken from below leave out a lot of the background and focus more on what is up high.
Have you tried shooting photos from different perspectives? It can really add some fun to a photo shoot!

I am laughing at the mental image of the mom on the ground taking a picture, and even funnier watching her get up from that position! This is a stunning picture of you, Emma. XOXO, Sparkle
The funniest part was that it was wet, dirty snow she had to lay on, but she did it!

This is great! I knew your Mom would be willing to get down on the ground outside to do this one, Emma (unlike me). There is something regal about the way you dogs look when shot from down below!
We did some of these two summers ago and it was fun. New angles are always interesting.
Nice shot. Perfect for the challenge.
we learnt that it is better to take photos from that lower perspective… if we do it vice versa we sometimes have an effect where we start to ponder about a diet, because some body parts look bigger than they really are :O)))
Oh dear. We find photos from above interesting too. I guess it just depends on how it is staged.

Mom likes taking a lower perspective. A great way to capture our cuteness

I’m short, but you guys are super short! Does she dig a hole to stand in to get the viewpoint?

I love low perspective photos. It is such a great angle to shoot.
They can really create a lot of different feelings depending on how they are set up.
The low gets high maks from us!
Frankie and Ernie says
WE love that super picture.
I look like a huge, super dog I think!
Kinley Westie says
That is FABULOUS!!! But….then again, I would expect NOTHING LESS from YOU!!
Thank you. It was fun seeing Mom flat on the ground! Too bad I didn’t snap an above photo of that!

Very cool photo
The Daily Pip says
I love the angle of this photo! My assistant often gets down on the ground when she takes pictures of me. She likes when we are at eye level.
My photographer does a lot of eye level photos of us, but she really had to lie down to get under me since I’m short!
What a great shot!!
Dory, Jakey, Arty & Bilbo
What a cute picture! I love taking pictures from that angle–we do it a lot when there are pretty leaves in the fall 🙂
That is a good idea!
Groovy Goldendoodles says
Tell your photographer she did a great job. Usually when I try to capture from that angle, Jaxson will get down to my level with me LOL
Maybe he wants to be a photographer and has heard that you should be on the same level as your subject?

You look like you’re having so much fun with this challenge! Great photo!
It’s fun to get new ideas or to be reminded of ideas you often forget about.
Tails Around the Ranch says
This challenge can be tricky to capture but mostly on bad knees. 🙂
I love that photo! I often put my dogs on “pedestals” to photograph them. I like it for the same reasons as you do. I also sometimes lie on the ground to get photos of them running to me – sometimes Shyla looks at me lying in the snow as if I’ve lost my mind 🙂 Maybe I have!
I really love the composition of your photo!
Thank you. I know our neighbors thing my mom is nuts as she is always outside doing strange things with the camera attached to her face, but photography is fun.
