Try Switching Up Your Photo Angles
By Sweetnicks on August 29, 2011

[ Editor's note: Do you ever stand up on a chair or get down to the ground and try new angles with your photography? I love Cate's journey from the blah photo to the "m-o-n-e-y shot" just by switching up the angles in this food photo. (I also love how orchid-like and interesting the radicchio turned out.) -- Julie]
For the one or two shots you see here with each post, there are usually a minimum of 10 (but admittedly sometimes 100+, depending on the topic) that were discarded and didn’t make the cut for whatever reason. Since it’s not as easy to have a redo, I try to take as many configurations as possible to ensure that I get the m-o-n-e-y shot, because it totally sucks to download pictures and realize too late that nothing works.
