Drag to set position!

Lois Richter ADMIN September 15, 2015
Looking UP along an object is an unusual perspective for most folks. This group is to show off YOUR upwardly-looking photos! There are two rules ... 1) aimed straight up (if you see the horizon, it isn't UP enough for here), 2) there is something in the foreground [tree, building, kite string, flower stem, etc,] that is close to you and extends into the distance (shots of the ceiling or a bird flying don't make it). Thanks for looking and/or participating.

This group discussion is for members only.

Group Description

It's all a point of view -- camera angle, that is.
Looking UP a tree trunk, flower stalk, or wall can show us details and viewpoints that most of the world misses.
Each image should have a FOREGROUND and an UPGROUND that connect. When the camera is close to (or on) an object and you are pointing UP along it -- that's what we want to see! Sky is the usual backdrop, but other things work as well.
(If we can see the horizon, the image is not UPwards enough for this group. And while a photo of just clouds may be lovely, it doesn't belong here!)

WELCOME to the world of the UPWARDLY photo!
