A vast majority of the work I’m asked to do are ‘views’. Eye level views are the ones most often requested, though in discussion these often evolve into ariel views that can include more context and give a better idea of the overall proposal. For those that do stay as ‘Eye-Level’, I prefer a viewpoint slightly higher than the typical 1700mm AFFL.; this avoids the composition killing ‘line of heads’ all vying for attention with the vanishing points on the horizon line.
The key aspect to all of these of course is that they’re populated by ‘people’: This serves the essential mechanism by which a viewer interprets an image; enabling them to mentally place themselves within the realms of the view and imagine the proposal.
