Chris HanleyChris Hanley is one of Damien Lovegroves training experts and also one of Damien's co tutors.   Courses are now available on how to replicate their shooting styles on Damien's website.  You can also visit Chris Hanley's blog for more information.

Here's his tip:

"I used manual focus for this picture and a 10sec self timer with the camera on a monopod. I also used a smallish aperture on a wide angle lens and my assistant used an off camera speedlight.

To create this shot you need to pre focus then press the shutter and hoist the camera above the table."

I use the same technique outdoors with large group shots. People can't hide and clients enjoy the novelty of the process and the "aerial" POV of the image. I use my Canon G11 for this set up so I can keep an eye on the framing in the flip out LCD screen.
