‘Angle Of View’ (AOV)
In terms of landscape photography, when I talk about ‘angle of view’, I’m talking about the angle of the camera to the landscape you’re shooting. The relationship between the camera and subject provides the emotional ‘oomph’ to the photograph. The more extreme the angle, the more symbolic and interpretive the shot becomes.
I like to think of camera angles more like a filmmaker would:
