We're all re­stricted to shoot­ing what’s within our level of flex­i­bil­ity, mak­ing more ex­treme an­gles im­pos­si­ble with­out yoga lessons! In this sit­u­a­tion ex­tra kit is of­ten the key, with some­thing as sim­ple as a set of steps pro­vid­ing a bet­ter an­gle for a group shot. This is es­pe­cially use­ful when the group's too big to fit in one shot, or there’s a va­ri­ety of heights to con­tend with.

A mono­pod can also be used to shoot a high-an­gle 360° panorama – sim­ply hold it at arm's length above you in the cen­tre of a busy town square, with the lens point­ing di­ag­o­nally to­wards the ground. Fire the shut­ter with a re­mote, then turn a small amount, fire the shut­ter again, and re­peat un­til you’ve ro­tated 360 de­grees on the spot. About 12 shots is fine, and the re­sults can be stitched to­gether in Pho­to­shop El­e­ments us­ing its Pho­tomerge com­mand (En­hance > Pho­tomerge > Pho­tomerge Panorama).
