Useful tips for taking bird's eye view photos
Digital camera photography has given so many options for different angles to photograph a subject like the bird’s eye view photography. In bird's eye view photography, we look down on a landscape, a subject, a scene or a collection of objects from a high location. The images in such a situation represents the position that a bird would see the subject from.

Many times, the bird’s eye view gives very striking pictures, which are feast to the eyes. In fact, the bird's eye view photography has turned into a visual art. With a few simple tips one can take reasonable birds eye view pictures easily.

Positioning of the photographer is important in such photography. The photographer has to position himself or herself in a high location, which allows to look down. Do not be afraid to experiment, taking several test shots, with which you can adjust the framing, position, shutter speed, and aperture. There is no fixed rule or option, as at different location, different camera settings are required.

The camera should be steady against a firm rest or mounted on tripod. Even the slightest camera shake can cause a blur in the picture as the distance between the subject plane and the camera is large. Have a fast shutter speed and release the shutter with a cable or timer setting. This will decrease the chances of motion blur.

A hill top, a large tower or building, the window of a plane, elevator, roof-tops and other such structures are good locations for bird's eye view photography.

Sometimes one has to do a bit of photo editing of the snap since lighting and other objects in the scene are not under our control. One may require putting the picture through a photo editing process to bring out certain colours and strike a proper contrast.
