    How to annoy photography snobs: 08 Tilting horizons

    Classic mistakes when cropping photos: slanted horizon

    Landscapes, especially those with trees, buildings or water usually don’t look quite right if they’re photographed with the camera at a slight angle.

    We expect to see trees growing straight up, buildings being perpendicular to the ground and water being level and anything off kilter can draw negative comments.

    If they’re not you can expect a photo snob to point it out for you.

    However, rotating the camera to a 45degree angle from level can produce very dynamic results.

    It doesn’t work with every scene (far from it), but it’s a useful, easy technique for all sorts of situations, especially when you want a frame-filling shot of an awkwardly shaped subject.
