Example of high-angle shot in photography

With this type of angle, the camera looks down on the subject and the point of focus often get "swallowed up"

High angle shots also make the figure or object seem vulnerable or powerless.

High angle shots are usually used in film to make the moment more dramatic or if there is someone at a high level that the character below is talking to.
