Hey guys, just thought of something.
In everything we photographers shoot, we always try to find a different angle on things.
What I realise from shooting all my school events and looking at "stylo"-posed CCA group photos is that it's always always aaalllways at eye level or lower.
I might seem silly, but how would a camera put on a monopod with a cable-shutter with or without liveview sound like to get that extra height and perspective? Would it be totally dangerous and stupid if I were to try that? That is, put 2kg of equipment and hold the monopod up near the bottom of the legs and then shoot.
It's kind of like having Yao Ming on a step ladder, without him actually blocking the event.
