01/20/07: Tilting the Camera

One creative way to change the composition of your shots (and sometimes break the monotony of what seems to be too many straight horizontal shots) is to use a slight camera tilt in capturing your images. Some would argue that this is a bit of an over-used compositional trick -- and that may be -- but if the tilt adds a new dimension to the look of the shot (such as the one above showing a bunch of right angles), go ahead and give it a bit of a tilt. Just make sure that you continue to seek a bit of variety in your images -- if you tilt too much, you could ruin the composition. Be careful when tilting for shots that don't seem right when tilted -- such as lake water or an ocean view.
