Get Down

I can't dance. I really wish I could but rhythm and movement escape me. I've always had admiration with those that have the ability to dance. Guys who know how to dance..well…I think we know the rest.

But I've learnt another special way to get down. The first book I read about photography suggested that 95% of photos are taken from around head height or mid chest…tripod height. So if you want something a little original, try sitting on the ground, or even putting the camera down.

Over time I've taken the opportunity to the extreme. On a recent trip to Europe I did it so often my colleagues got so used to it they ended up taking photos of me taking photos…sitting on my arse.

It's worth it to look at things from a different perspective. You get such a different view of things you thought you knew. It doesn't always mean the view is better, just different. Sometimes it's no better…but sometimes it can blow you away, just because it's new.

I can't dance, but getting down can be the best thing you can do.

Good advice. The results are interesting because they are unpredictable.
