I was reading an article in a Canon magazine this morning. They published a piece of the essay "The Mind's Eye" written by Henri Cartier-Bresson. The piece talked about the tiny things a photographer can do to affect the final geographical image. Moving half an inch left or a quarter of an inch right. Also the fact that cropping of an image takes away from the original intent of the photographer (keeping in mind that Bresson believed in getting it right the first time). The last sentance of the article discusses when a photographer lays on his stomach (or uses other antics) to acheive the desired effect of the final image. I enjoyed reading this, because it falls right along the lines of doing what you have to do to acheive what you want. Try it, you might get something you like!
The images in this post involve the use of a good A-clamp. There is the behind the scenes photo & what the final photo looked like. I always recommend making sure the clothing fits, or at least appears to fit.
