I am always drawn to the “from above” point of view. When not using my iPhone, I might use my 14mm for this pov, but with the DSLR, I wasn’t able to a) get high enough to include myself in the scene, b) I didn’t have a tripod that would reach either. and c) the DSLR and lens are super heavy likely would knock myself out if it fell!
Knowing that smartphones have come along way in quality, I wanted to take it all the way up as high as the ceiling. The little shelf makes it a simple “slide in and out” device when I need to make some tweaks and adjustments to my composition. It’s a fun way to capture the entire scene. I can’t wait to see what you come up with Rebecca! Check out #projectbirdseyeview for inspiration from others that tried this technique.
