Low Angle Photography

A Snake's Eye View of the World

Low AND Wide Angle

This challenge closed over 3 years ago.

The Challenge

This is our first challenge and this group is very young (few days old only) so, we are testing here the reaction of our members and their motivation to participate.

If the results are positives, we will be delighted to create more challenges (some with voucher) in the future.

Considering that, we are allowing a time frame of 2 weeks for submissions, starting right now. It will give you the time to go out and make this photo we want if you don’t have it yet and it will also allow new members to join us and participate in this first challenge as well.

It will also be very appreciated if you see this kind of photograph on RedBubble to ask the artist to request an invitation to our group and to submit his/her photo to the challenge. Thank you for that ;-)


What kind of photo must be submitted?

We want to see EXCLUSIVELY a Low Angle shot of course but with the following specificities:

1. Photo MUST be taken from a VERY Low Angle. “Rat View” (Shot from the ground level) is not an obligation but a must.

2. Wide angle lens is also a must. The wider, the better but not a “Fisheye” please. If you have a lens between 15 and 20mm (24×36 sensor) or between 10 and 15mm (DX cropped sensor) that would be the perfect one to use.

3. Taking photo from the ground with a very wide angle lens may bring a lot of deformations on the vertical axis but don’t be afraid about that as if it is artistic and give a nice perspective to the subject, we’ll love it.

4. Everything has to be perfect on the photo you’ll submit. Photo MUST be perfectly clear, sharp, impressive with nothing distracting or out of context in the background. We will be VERY picky about that and any photo not fitting in this challenge will be removed before voting.

5. Subject can be about anything following RedBubble rules and guidelines as well as the specific rules of this group.

6. We accept full colours, black & white, sepia and selective colour images as well.
