How To Take The Perfect Vertigo Photo

Dennis Maitland's 'Life on the Edge' photos are intensely beautiful, but also kind of make you want to throw up. Maitland explains how to take the perfect puke shot.

1. Get elevated

2. Find an odd feature, other on the ground or on the building

3. Play with symmetry

4. Keep everything in focus

5. Shoot with a wide-angle lens

6. Use a fast shutter speed

7. Get some cool shoes

8. Don't trespass

9. On second thought, don't do this at all
