Highs and Lows of wedding photography

Sometimes the coolest photos are taken at unusual angles. I would guess that over 90% of all photos are captured at eye-level. Not that there is anything wrong with that, of course. But I might suggest trying something different. Here are two alternatives;

1-Shoot from above. The top photo below was taken with a camera mounted on a Monopod (my wife calls it camera on a stick). A remote triggering device allows us to fire the camera when it is 4 feet above our head. I usually set the camera lens at wide-angle so the photo can survey the entire scene. This works well on a crowded dance floor. Auto focus is a must.

2-Another idea is to get down on the ground and shoot up. This is also a crowd favorite, as it offers a fresh fun quirky view. Many cameras these days have articulating LCD monitors, this allows the photographer to still see what the camera is seeing, even if the camera is not eye-level. So get down and dirty, and get on the ground, or at least put your camera there!
