A popular camera angle these days is looking straight down onto the subject. What I wanted to play with in my most recent work is using this point of view to abstract a figure. This high viewpoint allowed me to play with light and shadow in a surrealistic way as well as create an interesting composition where the shadow takes on a leading role. I couldn't have done this one all by myself so thanks to stylist Joanna Andreoni for all her help and Tarah Dowling for her expert performance as our subject.
I was also able to create a simple stop motion piece that incorporates motion into the concept and takes the surrealism a bit further.
