By changing the perspective you are seeing through the camera lens, you can make a dramatic difference in the outcome of your photograph. Perspective is controlled by the distance of  the lens to the subject of interest…not by the focal length of the lens.

A simple row of tulips becomes more interesting by changing the position of the camera and how close you get to the subject.

By moving in close on the flower it comes alive.

Crop and add creative treatment and it’s a WOW

Since a photograph is two dimensional-lacking depth, then changing perspective creates an illusion of depth. Try photographing  the same subject  from above,  below and  sideways.  Move the camera in closer to the subject.  Now look at the results and decide which perspective you like the most.
