i can’t take pictures ‘right’. i seldom have a great camera. i’m usually using my phone. it has poor color. it has strange focus. so i use black and white and i set it down. as a result, i end up with peculiar angles on my shots. there are lots of coffee cups, lots of hands, lots of textures and odd angles.
they are called ‘dutch angles’ for reasons that i don’t know. at least that’s what those shots are called in video, the shot from the odd perspective.
i take them that way because of limitations, but they have become a style that others recognize.
i look at lots of things that way, from odd angles. but so do you.
i just know that it’s a strength (at least some times). and maybe you don’t know that your perspective, shaped however it is, is a strength.
but it is.
