We recently shot The Smith Family Christmas Appeal and with an hour to spare in the morning we decided to muck around and test out the overhead camera rig. We put a Canon 5DSR (50mp camera) up 5 meters in the air, directly above our subject= and shot remotely to the laptop… worked a charm!
Sometimes directing from behind the camera involves a 3 way conversation. If you are interested there is a behind the scenes video of the photo shoot ! click here for video – didn’t know I squinted so much
