Get Low

by Camellia Staab January. 17, 2021 525 views
It's time to get down... well, not to party - but to GET LOW! Squat, bend, lie down, whatever it takes to view the world from the unique angle of close to the ground.

This week's 52 frame challenge; low angle photography.

As per always, I can never settle on one photo, although I only post one on the 52frame site, here I can post more.

Yup, this trick usually yields good and interesting results. 😊 (Do you really have a deer's head on your wall?)

Yes, we inherited from my husband's dad. Neither of them were or are hunters so how he managed to get one is beyond me. smile

If I get too low these days I'm staying there. Luckily my new camera has a flip up thingummybob, meaning the camera gets low and I don't have to, I just keep forgetting to use it. I had a brainwave today. You're not surprised, I can tell. But this was a good one, I think. I was walking the lanes up top and I know there are great views up there but our hedgerows are so high that unless you stop at a farm gate you are mostly just looking at the hedge. My walking stick is actually a monopod, I had forgotten. My little point and shoot has a timer and a little hole that fixes to the monopod so I am going to experiment with sticking it on the stick, setting the timer and waving it around in the air in a sort of fishing expedition. Watch this space.smile

Really nice, Camellia - I especially like the banister shot. Which one did you post? I used my "Been Down so Long.." for mine and for my 365project - a first for all three sites! Getting low was very difficult for me because of lumbar fusion surgery 8 months ago, so I used a selfie stick and remote with my phone. Love you work!

John I started off with the bottom of my husband shoe, then I realized that I had a shot for the extra credit ( still don't know the benefits of the extra credit) so went back and removed my husband's shoe and replaced it with the banister. I have my moments as far as getting up and down. Nikon has an excellent app called "Snapbridge" that does an excellent job of being used as a remote trigger because one can see the photo on the cell, focus and press the shutter, which is what I used for #2 which is actually my feet . smile

Good choice - thank goodness for the apps that let us "accommodate"!
