As the saying goes, go big / long or go home …Some behind the scenes shots from the images posted here and here in the Fun with Medium Format Images thread. Having the camera hanging off the end of the 1.4x teleconverter attached to the 350 Tele-Superachromat is workable but not ideal, and since I knew I'd be setting up fairly close to the car I decided to go all in with the long lens rail - solid as the proverbial rock.

Ironically, I like the S largely for its OVF. I guess Robert Wadlow could have looked through it at that height, but no one else before or since. (Ladders are cheating!)I can't decide if I am viewing an 8' monopod or a 4' photographer....
But nice cat image.
Matt,Not sure if this counts. I can't really get a good picture of me with an 8 foot monopod *taking* the picture. So here is the picture:
If you think about it, an eye-level shot would have the photographer, guitar player, and background crowd all mashed together.
And here is the equipment - Leica S3, 24/3.5, Arca Swiss L60, RRS MC-45, and cat. I could use an iPhone for framing, leveling, and shooting. But I just used a wired release. Did I mention lazy?
Next time I'll have an assistant!
You! Shall not! Pass! - without having your picture taken...
