Is there a type of shot in photography that just gives you the howling fantods every time you see it? For me, it’s when a photographer points the camera down and shoots his or her own feet. I’m not saying my reaction is rational or deserved. I’m just sayin’, is all.
So just to be the complete opposite of that, I shot a bunch of shots last weekend with my camera pointed at the ceiling, which had this fairly large, paned mirror on it. The ceiling wasn’t that high, and there was certainly no balcony there, but the mirror provided the opportunity to shoot from somewhat above the dance floor and dinner tables. I like the framing, too.
