    Ideas For New Camera Angles: Exaggerate features

    We’ve all seen pictures of famous places and landmarks. Usually they’re taken as a ‘record’ shot and rarely differ from photographer to photographer.

    Why not stand out from the crowd and do something special?

    Composing to include and accentuate a well-known feature of your location is always worth a try.

    In this image of Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol, UK, a wide-angle lens has been used to emphasise the suspension rods that hold the bridge up.
