Up angle? Puts the modle on a higher level, like she is special????
or
better
or
overpowering
or
just beautiful and deserves a higher plane
???

Hidden body parts, hands feet, cropped above the knees
cropped to just see legs??????
hands in the hair?
hands behind supporting themselves????

implied lines to carry your eyes past the confines of the print then back on????
ok why is these items good yet others say it isn't.

more specific in you're request. A mind reader I ain't. However I'd like to comment on the "up angle" thing. Years ago I think it was "da fish" that said He always knew when a photographer knew what he was doing by how far off the ground his camera was. The lower the smarter. . . or something like that. He was commenting on the foreshortening effect all cameras have when the plane of the film is not parallel to the subject. I believe that with digital cameras the effect is worse since the sensor plane is even smaller than 35mm film. Most photographers shot from eye level and never realize they are shooting down and therefore make the torso look longer when compared to the legs. (I call it the paparazzi syndrome) If you want to make the legs look longer shoot from knee high. The most natural is waist level being careful to keep the sensor plane parallel to the subject. Sometime try this experiment. Pose a model against a white or other featureless back drop, (this is important) face and hips on. Then from exactly the same distance (filling the finder with your subject) shoot three images. One at eye level (shooting down, one at waist and one from the knees up (shooting up). Enlarge these image to at least 8x10 and set them side by side. Ask some non photographer friends which they like the best and why. I think you will be surprised. For years I carried a set of such images and asked dozens of people which they prefered and most picked either the low angle or the waist angle but unless they were experienced photographers they couldn't tell me why or what the difference was. They just seemed better.

Let me translate!
Many photographers refer to amputees when a hand or foot cannot be seen. Yes this sometimes looks bad but I don't think it does in every instance.
One photographer stated that an up angle was bad and he suggests that it should never be done. Then a couple of days later it was suggested that my up angle wasn't enough.
An up angle can have a powerful effect as to suggest power or importance.

Suggested lines formed by body parts that bleed off the page, tucked away as not to be seen.
Cropping
rules are rules! But rules are made to be broken.
I attended 3 composition classes for photography
all this just makes me [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
