Specifying View Angle in a Stable Diffusion Prompt

You can specify the camera view angle directly in the prompt using common cinematography terms like:

  • “bird’s eye view” – Looking straight down from above
  • “high angle shot” – Looking down at an angle
  • “eye level shot” – Viewer is level with the subject
  • “low angle shot” – Looking up at the subject
  • “Dutch tilt” – Camera is tilted sideways
  • “overhead shot” – Another term for bird’s eye view

The search results emphasize being as descriptive as possible and avoiding vague terms like “slightly above”.

Combining Camera Angles with Other Prompt Elements

You’ll get the best results by combining the camera angle with other prompt elements like the subject, style, lighting etc.

For example:

  • “A couple looking over the beach, eye level shot, soft lighting, impressionist style”

Experimenting is Key

The search results stress the importance of experimenting with different camera positions and seeing how they impact the output image. Small tweaks can make a big difference.

Prompt Format Summary

Based on the sources, an effective view angle prompt has this general structure:

  • Subject and scene
  • Camera angle
  • Other cinematic details like lighting and style
  • Image specifications like “4k detailed rendering”

The goal is to paint a vivid word picture for the AI to translate into pixels.
