Angles are everything in photography, and one of the most vital aspects to understand when learning how to take a better photo. Angles are what separate different photographers from the same subject. Only photographing a mountain from one angle will produce many similar images. Different angles create different feelings within frames. Most subjects, especially people, benefit from various angles and viewpoints. When taking better photos, try capturing five different and unique angles of the same subject. Simple subjects work best for this, such as a flower or a pet (if they are still enough!) Thinking of unique angles on basic subjects will immensely help in more stressful photographic situations in the future. Angles can be monumental when conveying stories or moods with imagery. Some DSLR cameras can process hundreds of shots a minute; think of all the possible angles that can be captured using that amount of ammunition.
