My Mother was born in 1926 and at some time during her younger life she got a Box Brownie camera, she seemed to have a good eye for composition from the family and general pictures l have seen that survived. They had a look which is hard to define which l could not achieve. Finaly l worked it out when l got a Rolleiflex TLR and took shots holding the camera at waist level. Being 6f 2in tall any pictures l took with a 35mm camera at my eye level l would always be shooting down on a group or subject where waist level pictures l would be shooting straight on. Anyone notice the same difference from pictures taken with waist level cameras? There is a difference, again its hard to define. l drop down and shoot straight on with groups now to get the look.
