These pictures were taken with my I phone holding it way above my eye level in the one with sunflowers and sprinkler.
I held the camera below my eye level to take the selfie of me in the blackberries.
The camera lens finder or binoculars are tools useful for inspiration to paint.. When painting on location I have used both to help me select from too many stimulating subjects outdoors. These four photographs are examples of taking a pictures with the camera tilted upwards like the point of view of a child. I like to keep the innocent child-like excitement in my painting and the perspective has something to do with the drama and charm in my painting.
