For this kind of shot it’s obviously crucial to have a tripod that goes down to ground level. I shot wide open, and used LiveView to help with the composition and precise focus. It’s easy to miss the precise point of focus if you just shoot manually and judge by eye when shooting like this: you really have to zoom in on the preview screen to get it right (and hope your subject doesn’t move!).
