  • Art 177 :: Creative Photography

    Vantage Points

  • Vantage Points [or point of view] ❖ A vantage point, or point of

    view is where the camera is placed in relationship to the primary object being photographed

    ❖ By changing the vantage point, the photographer can affect the emphasis within the setting, the strength of the object and the juxtaposition (physical relationships) between the objects

  • Vantage Points [or point of view] ❖ There are three basic vantage

    points: ❖ Eye level ❖ Low POV ❖ High POV [looking down]

    ❖ And two variations: ❖ High POV [looking up] ❖ Vertical [looking straight

    down]

  • Vantage Points [eye level] ❖ The eye level vantage point

    creates a neutral photograph ❖ These photos essentially

    recreate how we normally see things

    ❖ Most photographs are shot at eye level

  • Vantage Points [eye level] ❖ While sometimes this can

    create a somewhat boring photo, it can also be the most intimate

  • Vantage Points [low point of view] ❖ The low point of view

    tends to create a more intimate look than at eye level

  • Vantage Points [low point of view] ❖ The low point of view

    emphasizes the object closest to the ground

  • Vantage Points [low point of view] ❖ It also makes the object

    appear to be larger and stronger

  • Vantage Points [high point of view] ❖ The high point of view tends

    to create a more patriarchal photo

    ❖ The high point of view emphasizes the part of the object closest to the camera

  • Vantage Points [high point of view] ❖ It also emphasizes shapes

    and the form of the object

  • Vantage Points [high point of view] ❖ It also makes the object or

    person appear to be weaker

  • Vantage Points [vertical] ❖ The vertical point of view can

    help abstract the subject matter since we normally don’t view it from that angle

    ❖ It can also emphasize the shape of the object and its relationship with the area around it [the figure/ground relationship]

  • Vantage Points [high point of view] ❖ The high point of view while

    looking up can help abstract the subject matter since we normally don’t view it from that angle

    ❖ It can also emphasize the shape of the object and its relationship with the area around it [the figure/ground relationship]

  • Vantage Points [considerations] ❖ People are often tempted to take

    a photo from a high, or low point of view because it “looks cool”

    ❖ Vantage points are extremely powerful tools you can use to modify the look of the objects, the location and/or the relationships between everything in the photo

    ❖ Consider why you chose the vantage point before taking a photo
