Trying to figure out a way to make something large than life.

We’ve spent three days in Cambodia shooting temples in Siem Reap Province. This particular shot was done at sunrise at one of the smaller ruins. We climbed for about 35 minutes up a hill to find this temple. Since I’ve already shot over one hundred images of this genre I wanted to get something a little different.

Climbing the stairs to the top of the temple is quite the task. The steps are narrow and quite high. I felt as If I was mounting climbing.
So it just so happens that as I came eye level with the last step, the temple in the back looked so iddy bitty small.

And that is how I thought of shooting something larger than life in a diferent perspective.
