One of the rules I follow when photographing, especially landscapes, is to make sure that the shot is level. There are few things that can visually throw an image off quicker than a slanted horizon. When editing my photos, I painstakingly use Photoshop’s Lens Correction filter to ensure the shot is level.

There are times, however, when throwing a shot off-level can work in creating an artistic element to the photo. Today’s image of an LCD projector is an example of this technique. By shooting the subject at a close distance and an angle, the resulting diagonal lines add a bit of pizazz to what could be an otherwise boring shot. Give it a try.
