Do you know why some professional photographers wear jeans when they are shooting outdoors?

I believe they do this because they might want to get on their knees while shooting a photo (on one of my recent photo shoots, I seriously considered wearing knee pads).

Why? Well, most photos are shot at eye-level (about 5 feet). If you want to shoot at a different POV (Point Of View), you need to get lower, or higher (maybe even find a ladder).

This Church is a California landmark. It is located on "Church Road", in Campo, California (on an Indian Reservation).

I shot it "on my knees" in order to get a different POV. This photo was shot just before Easter of 2007. Hope you like it.

I like this photo because I can imagine someone (maybe decades ago) ringing the bell in front of this Church to let people know that it was time to attend.

Also, I felt it was very appropriate for me to get "on my knees" to shoot a photo of this Church around Easter time.

Yes, there is a fair amount of "keystoning" in this photo which I like and feel is appropriate, however if you don't like it, you can easily correct it in Photoshop CS2.
