I have often read about how ill-advised it is to shoot straight down. While I have a problem with general admonitions about positioning and perspective, I can see why rules may sometimes be necessary. My argument is that rules should not deter anyone who feels the need to break them. I don’t need to name the authors who chose to ignore punctuation, or who wrote stream of thought without consideration for grammar. Unlike language, the visual arts like photography need no common grammar to ensure accurate communication; what they do require is emotional impact, interest etc. to gain attention.
