Macro Mondays: Dutch Angle

This week’s theme for the Flickr Macro Mondays group is “Dutch Angle.” From this week’s instructions (via Moderator George Frizzel):

This week in Macro Mondays we are going for something quite different and possibly a first where macro photography is concerned. You are required to use a technique called The Dutch Angle, also known as Dutch tilt, canted angle, or oblique angle.

It is a type of camera shot which involves deliberately setting the camera at an angle on its roll axis so that the shot is composed with vertical lines at an angle to the side of the frame, or so that the horizon line of the shot is not parallel with the bottom of the camera frame. This produces a viewpoint akin to tilting one’s head to the side. By using this technique, you should be able to produce an interesting angle on your subject. Experimentation is the key when using this technique.

You can choose the subject to photograph but when adding it to the pool your photograph it must be obvious to the mods that you have used this the Dutch Angle technique.

Honeycomb by Library of Flowers

In searching for something to photograph for this week’s Macro Mondays theme of “Dutch Angle,” I wanted to find something that would be obvious that I tilted my camera. I must have looked at dozens of potential subjects but it wasn’t until I finished getting ready for the day and spritzed on my favorite perfume that I became inspired. This is a tiny little bottle of the most delectable scent I’ve ever smelled. It’s called Honeycomb by Library of Flowers. I always have it on my Amazon Wishlist because it’s a little pricey and makes a perfect gift. I LOVE the way this smells.

To set up this shot, I used some sparkly beads in the background to create some pretty bokeh and used my tripod to tilt my camera.
