- The next idea that I want you…to think about is angle.…And I'm talking specifically about…the angle that the camera is tilted at,…or not tilted at.…You may have heard the term a dutch angle before,…and that's when the camera gets tilted a little bit.…And this can be very, very effective,…both in photography and in filmmaking.…In this case, we're going to take…a picture of the scene behind me here…where I have this path leading down…to a little cabin and I'm going to shoot it first…just straight on.…And then I'm gonna go for a bit of an angle…and we'll see how much of a difference…it makes in the shot.…So first let's take a look at this just straight on.…
Pretty normal...…Like so.…And you know, that's not a bad photo, it's pretty.…We see the path, we see the house in the background,…that's pretty good.…But now let's see what happens if I angle this a bit…and really force the perspective and force…that house into the corner of the shot.…I'm gonna zoom in just a little bit.…We're still gonna put the focus point…way down here on the path.…
