Shooting from Completely Different Angles

11

What if you combine 2 of the 10 Golden Rules of Lomography? - Try the shot from the hip while not worrying about the rules...

I’m a really tall guy, and shooting from the hip with my Lomo LC-A+ doesn’t always give the right result. So what I do is I try aiming it a lower angle and sometimes I put the camera on the floor to get a completely different view on your subject(s).

    Wow, I like your shots and the perspectives a lot! I always forget to change perspective for a shot although 'I always try to remember to do so. I do think that the outcome is always so much more interesting!
