Part of being a photographer is always looking for the shot no one else has. We have talked about shooting from high by holding your camera above everyone and shooting from low by laying down on the ground. What if you want an even higher vantage point? Use a monopod. Attach your camera to your monopod and extend it all the way out. To trigger you camera you can use a cable release cord, thread along the monopod or a remote camera trigger like a pocket wizard of an ebay remote.
