Usually I shoot a shot at a regular height or I will try to get low for it. This actually seems to be the trend in general for Disney Photography. Something I never see though is someone trying to go much higher with a shot. So I decided I would try it for this shot. I put my tripod on the planter ledge around partners and fully extended the legs and center column. I put the legs close together to get a little extra height. At 6’4 I was just able to press the live view button so I could frame up the shot. I had to set all the settings in advance and then triggered it with my remote. It would have been even more awesome with 2-3 more feet of height but I really like the vantage point I got from going high with this shot.
