The main problem when taking shots of tall, thin objects, such as this sculpture, is the amount of space that surrounds them.
It can look strange and un-artistic if the subject’s placed in the centre of the frame while you shoot upwards – fine for the pages of a scientific journal, but we want to create an artistic image.
