Sometimes all you need to do to get that creative photograph you want is change up your vantage point. As you are shooting during your holiday vacation, think about how you can change up your vantage point and make your photographs more interesting!
When shooting, look around you and see if there is a high vantage point you can find to shoot down on your subject. This could be a stairway, a balcony, a window or even a step ladder will do the trick. Another trick is to get down low. Get down on the ground or set your camera on the ground and shoot up. This unique vantage point will make your images more dynamic and interesting. You might also try framing your subject with surrounding elements, trees, architectural details etc. As you are more aware of your surroundings as you are shooting, your photographs will naturally improve.
