Dutch tilt and unbalanced composition
If you have an interior shooting job, one of your major concerns will be the “level” of the shots. That’s when a bubble level will be very useful. This tool is also vital when shooting videos. But as far as creativity is concerned, a shot using the Dutch tilt angle can produce a dynamic image.
Photos shown here were shot with Dutch tilt angles, which make a common image more spectacular, so to speak. In fact, photos in landscape orientation (like Photos 4 and 5), if shot with Dutch tilt angles, can provide more dramatic effects. Shot in the middle of a Shanghai street, this photo is not so interesting if taken in the landscape orientation. Now it looks a bit weird, and reminds me of those wartime photos capturing ruined cities in turmoil. Photo 4 has a similar shooting angle. In addition, it is shot with an unbalanced composition. The subjects are on one side, leaving a lot of space on the other side. On top of this unbalanced look, the puzzled look of the girl adds interest to this image.
