Rick, you're a much better photographer than me! I love all the work you've posted thus far. Nothing wrong with your method.
jadams007, best to not assume all artists do things the same way. How is it any different when the press hold cameras over their head to photograph above a crowd??
When a person comes along with something different, it doesn't make him/her any less of a photographer than one who works old school.
Go watch Turner Classic Movies channel and watch some old films. You'll see lots of unconventional camera angles that made some directors famous.
