a bird’s eye view

A few weeks ago Scott Anderson and I carried out my crazy idea of photographing yoga from above. All the times that I have photographed him in the past, it’s been on the same level. Now, to get above him (and me being 12 inches shorter) required more than a little step ladder!

When I shoot, I move. A lot. So, imagine the creative challenge of only being able to move 2 inches forward or back. And to be consciously aware that I am about nine fee in the air. It was awkward at times, but enlightening too.

I guess this is why I wanted to try the bird’s eye view. You never know what you are going to find when you do something a little different…
