    Do I use "from", "in" or "at"?

    I am not sure if I should use "from", "in" or "at" in the example I am going to make up below.

    (ex) The photographer uses special effects to take many pictures of John from or at different angles. Each angle shows a different look of him. From or in one view, he is tall and thin. From or in another view, he is muscular and short.

    Could someone please explain what prepositions to use here? In addition, my friend says that "shows" is not the right word. Please help me. Thank you very much.

    'Shows' is acceptable, although 'gives' is probably a better choice.
