What does a 'viewpoint' mean in photography?

A viewpoint in photography is the angle from which a photographer takes a photograph. It is the perspective of the photographer, the direction from which the shot is taken. By adjusting the viewpoint, photographers can create a different atmosphere, mood and story in each image. The viewpoint can range from low and close to the ground to high in the sky, or from straight on to looking up or down. It can also involve moving around or changing the subject. Using different viewpoints can help create unique and captivating images that tell a story and draw in the viewer.
