Look Up or Look Down……… I pop my mind into gear and consider different angles to make my images interesting.
Sometimes my camera is aimed down either from a step ladder or by simply holding the equipment above my head.
Obviously it does depend on circumstances.
This technique offers a different angle and is an excellent way of obliterating cluttered backgrounds.
I also look up, which can work well with high ranking business men and women as it gives the subject a sense of power.
In the above image I opted for the visually interesting colourful ceiling.
The ceiling was a far better background than the rather dull cream wall which was my other option.
I am sure my subjects thought I was a bit zany and ‘out there’ as I asked them to look down on me. But who cares, I certainly don’t, as in these circumstances the image does the talking!
