This is the most common angle. It places the camera at eye level with the subject so that when a viewer sees the image, he is eye-to-eye with the subject. It is a neutral angle that imposes no positive or negative values on the subject.
The high angle places the camera above the subject, looking down. This angle has a diminishing effect on the subject, making it appear smaller.
Also referred to as the power angle, this angle places the camera below the subject, looking up. It has the effect of empowering the subject, making it seem larger than its surroundings and in control.
The angle is taken from directly above. This is a completely different and somewhat unnatural point of view which can be used for dramatic effect of for showing a different spatial perspective.
A worm’s-eye view is a view of an object from below, as though the viewer were a worm; the opposite of a bird’s-eye view.
The Dutch or slanted angle skews the camera so that the horizon is tilted from the horizontal. It makes the setting appear out of balance and brings a sense of dread to the viewer.
