Shooting up - I meant the angle in which a photo is taken (very low angle)
Many a times, we find that a building that we want to snap, or a statue that we want as our background object, are just too high that we cannot have both our subjects and the background objects in the picture.
Sometimes, for a different effect, we do that too. Otherwise, all your photographs will not be any different from those taken by any other tourist or photographer.
Just like these two photographers. One lying on his back, and the other squatting and shooting 'blind'. Forgot to check with them how their photographs turn out. Probably pretty good, if they had used their flash (or they want to have silhouttes).
