A little How to: Many years ago I had seen an artist who painted a picture of her brother on a skateboard, no biggie, but the perspective she painted it at was as he was jumping over her so you saw the picture from below. I just thought it was a very cool and different perspective angle that you never really see or think of. That was about 1987-88, flash forward to 2014 and I got an idea of how to recreate the perspective. The model is @harmonynigh and she is a real Derby girl. She is on a small vanity stool to get her off the background, and had her kick her legs up. I put the main light high and shooting straight down on her. I'm on a small step ladder holding the camera as
high as I can get it to make sure she was in frame. Took a few shots but we got some fun results.
