Thank you so much. I was experimenting with different angles as part of the Beginning Photography class offered on this site. The low angle helped eliminate the ground clutter, but also strengthened the photo...what better background for a pilot than the sky.

Hi Thomasa,

I just wanted to reiterate... this is a wonderful illustration of what an unusual point of view can do for a portrait. Shooting down on someone often makes them look small, unimportant, and even humorous at times. Looking up at your model causes them to appear more impressive and strong. Again, great job with this assignment!
