Have you ever thought of taking a photo from your own perspective? To pull of such a thing, you need to have some form of your body in the photo, pointing towards the object you want viewers to concentrate on. It could be your feet in the bottom frame, your hand(s) reaching out from the frame, and more. (See first image).
Do you want the photo to be about you? Are you accomplishing a self-portrait for this exercise? Is the photograph telling a story about you that you want to share? (See second image).
Do you want the subjects in the photo to be strongly aware of the photographer behind the camera? Have your model reach out to the camera, point towards you, use their body language to indicate that you are very visible to them and that will make the viewer aware of your presence as well. (See bottom left image).
Most photographers want to be invisible. They want the image to stand strong on its own as if it just exists without any master behind the camera there to claim it. They don't want viewers thinking of the photographer, they want them thinking of the photograph. (See bottom right image). However, this does not mean that you are wrong if you choose to do a different perspective. It's all about your preference, you artistic and/or journalistic tastes. This is the thing about photography. There is no right or wrong. There's just whether or not you pull it off.
