Photography Tip: Long Legs vs. Short Legs

Here is another important photo tip: this image is an exagerated example of a shot of a dancer taken from a low angle.  If you look at dance shots done by professional dance photographers, they are always taken from a low angle in order to ensure that their legs appear as they are.  If you take an image from a higher angle, the legs will appear short.  You don’t want that.  I even bend down, in spite of the fact that I’m short.  My dancers look like their legs fit them. Some photographers don’t know this, and that’s where you will be able to spot the shooters who don’t have experience photographing dancers.
