Below Angle is a shot taken from an extremely low angle or directly from the bottom. In rare cases, it’s also used directly from below the subject.
This type of angle exaggerates the volume and importance of the shown object or subject. It reduces the importance of the surroundings almost entirely. Typically, this angle emphasizes the subject’s power and dominance, in some cases even to an unnatural extent. This is why the worm’s-eye view if emphasized to the extreme can have an abstract or highly expressive effect.« Back to Glossary Index
