Sophie climbing some rocks, Tasmania, Australia, 2013

I can’t emphasise enough how important it is to look for different perspectives. We’re more or less always looking straight ahead, or at least at eye level. So photos like that won’t show any crazy new ideas.

It’s often when you look straight up, or down in this case, that your images will become more interesting.

In the image here I wanted to grab Sophie’s determination when it comes to climbing something. This steep down perspective here one the one hand gives context (in fact, it gives the illusion of her being meters above the ground), and on the other shows her face and expression much better (when you climb, you typically look up…).

Anyway, I hope this gives you some incentive to check for “different” angles next time you grab your camera.
