Michelle Adamic In these shots I am trying to show the different angles of a picture and how it makes a picture look different. I took two different pictures of my brother standing on the balcony. In the one where I am at eye level with him you can see the background beyond him. There is a pond next to the tree. For the other picture I went down a couple steps and took the picture from below. You cannot see the pond, and can barley see the houses that you can see in the other angle. Different angles that pictures and films are taken at, effect the outcome of what people see in the final product..
MgrdichSirabionian This is Mr. Tea Pot in all his glory. Looks proportionate, you can see the candle at the bottom heating him up and the tea bag string telling us that there is tea in there, warm tea. He also looks happy. This is also Mr. Tea Pot. But he looks fatter in this picture, and what used to be tea bag strings, now look like cracks in Mr. Tea Pot’s body. I’m positive he won’t be sending this picture out during Christmas. HAH! And you can see my holding the camera on the lid….creepy.
For these two images you can see how different views in film can make a huge difference. For one example, if you wanted to see the persons face who is wearing the hat, then you need to have the lower angle. If you want to see the top of the hat, and other things around, then the top picture is the best. Yes, i know these are not the most appealing photos to people but i think that angle in such of seeing people with hats on is a good idea... (plus i have a lot of hats laying around!) Todd Spangler
Jennifer Biggs In the first photo I went straight on at the face and that is all you can see. Standing in the same spot but holding the camera higher we can see all of “Boo”, including how dirty he is (but he gets a bath once a week because I am a dog groomer)!!! I wanted to show how easy it is to hide or reveal certain details from the way we angle the camera. It is amazing in movies how the camera plays a big role in how the story unfolds.
In each picture, there is a different view presented. From the top view, the character is emphasized. There is a great focus on the top of her head, especially her eyes and facial features. In fact, the object (the book) she holds seems smaller than she is. From a lower angle, there is a greater focus on the object. In this picture, the viewer is drawn to the book because we are able to see the finer details, including the title. Although the objects have not been moved, the position of the shot changes the focus of the picture. MerdijanaKovacevic
Basketball Net In the high angle you are able to see how spread open the basket and the backboard actually are. Also it shows how large it actually is and how far away it is from the ground. In the low angle everything looks very compact and it looks like the basketball net is very high in the sky and at a high setting but it’s actually at its lowest setting possible. My intentions were to see the basketball net at a high angle because usually you are always looking at the net at a lower angle. Matthew Rustulka
SatyaDalavayi When I was looking through my room for ideas, I wanted to get something that made sure that a difference in perspective was very clear. So I used a cup that had a dry erase marker in it on my desk. When I looked at it from below, I thought about how Alice felt in Alice in Wonderland when looking at the key while shrunken. The cup seems so far away, and there is something in it, and there is a level of mystery shrouding that object. What is it? Why is it there? What is it's purpose? How does it play a part in the environment? On top of that, the desk was not visible, so the bottom of the desk was clear, but it was another mystery as to what was on the desk. Is it clean? Is it dirty? What kind of stuff can be found on the desk? Then I moved up and took a high angle picture. Now, the mystery is solved to a certain extent. It's just a dry erase marker in the cup, and its just being kept there to separate it from the rest of the clutter found on the desk. Basically, the low angle shot portrayed a lack of power and knowledge, while the high angle shot portrayed more knowledge and showing power.
Saly Kato I took the two different angles of my dinner centerpiece which is has many different kinds of flowers, leaves and decorations. Taking the picture from the top of it only showed the decorations in which the viewer would be very attracted to. From the top angle, the picture looked very inviting and appealing. The view from the bottom angle, however, was not appealing at all because it just showed what was holding the centerpiece together. It is put there for functional purposes, not meant to be the focus of the centerpiece. The different angles really changed the meaning of what the centerpiece is actually for.
Nikki Hess In the high angle I threw a couple of my Peanuts characters into the mix to show that the Ghostbuster’s car is being minimized and made more to look like a toy. In the low angle shot, if I could have found a better set and not used my dryer, I was attempting to make the car look bigger and possibly fool the person looking at the picture into believing that it could really be a real car!
Diana Mehdi Honestly, I took that high angle shot so that the hole we sip from shows. It gives the cup some content. The low angle shot was taken to show both images on the cup, the star and the coffee cup, in order to give more attitude to the image.
Matt Mahalak I took two pictures of one of my dogs. The first one was while lying on the floor. As you can see, she looks like an extremely large dog. Almost like she could be in the film Bug’s Life. The second picture was taken while I was standing on my tippy toes. In this photo, she looks a lot like her normal size. While she was terrified when I took both of these pictures (she is not very camera friendly), she actually looks intimidating in the first. She looks like she is staring something down, and then the glare on her eye is also a little frightening.
Renish Honest This photo was taken from the side view. The side view as well as the front view, in comparison with the other views, definitely gives the photo more meaning. I also find there to be more realism in this view. I guess there is also a feeling of warmth and satisfaction when a photo is taken from this view. Whenever I look at a photo from the front view or side view, I tend to remember that photo more often than if it was taken from the other views.
This photo was taken from a birds-eye-view. This shot seems to be less significant than the one taken from the side view. Although, when taken from a higher position, this photo would have a bigger effect to it. A photo taken from a birds-eye-view as opposed to one taken from the side view, also gives a bigger picture of the surroundings. Since in a birds-eye-view, the position of the observer is higher than that of the subject, there is a sense of tension and worry just as one would be looking down from the sky!
