Ah, the original Batman series. I liked how they would rotate the camera when climbing buildings. The Dutch angle or German angle was something I was familiar with from old classic Film Noir and such but not so much liked in "stills" It seems to work for me better in movies.

For some odd reason, in stills, if the main subject ( model ) creates a strong angle in a pose, that seems ok. One man's ceiling is another man's floor, I guess. (hmmm - idea for concept shoot. - writing this down)

Your work is wonderful. My website is still being set up. Cheers!
