We all see the world from eye level, but by taking the time to really explore a subject from all angles, you may find a much more interesting composition.
Many photographers make the mistake of standing in the one spot and zooming in to alter their viewpoint, but try moving closer, further away, or on either side or behind the subject.
For example by getting down lower you can emphasise interesting foreground features as they will loom larger in the frame.
Taken from the usual eye-level viewpoint, this is a fairly boring photo.
However when taken at ground level the toadstools are given a sense of height and there is a good use of depth of field to help them stand out.
Alternatively by photographing from a very high or low viewpoint you can get a really unusual perspective of a subject.
By taking this shot from above rather than front-on, the focus is on the baby's facial features but there's also a sense of intimacy between the mother and her baby.
