Term: Below Angle

Share This
« Back to Glossary Index

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