Phoenix Photowalk Lesson #3 – Look Up

by Kristi Hines · Arizona, HDR, Phoenix

For the final part of the series lessons learned during my first photowalk in downtown Phoenix, a great thing to remember when shooting with a large group is to look up. If you notice everyone is aiming straight ahead or down, then you need to take advantage of all of the things that are above the fold.

Now I will tell you that my tripod was not built to handle this well, and I found myself in some awkward positions. The following (another in the interesting green-lit alleyway) required me to get on the ground between a SUV and a dumpster. It was well worth it in the end for this spooky shot.
