Shooting down on someone is rarely a winning strategy. The most common reason to do that is to have the person look up to you, which has the benefit of stretching the neck to slim it a bit. But that's a small downward angle, not a severe one. A more severe downward angle would normally be used only if the composition calls for it, such as a person lying in the grass, or a dancer on the floor. But simply looking down on someone rarely places them in the best position for a photograph. As I said before, it places the forehead closest to the camera, which is rarely the person's most flattering aspect, and it often requires a funky eye position to meet the camera as well. Of course, having the subject look down gives a totally different feel to the photograph, and in those cases, it may very well be a desirable strategy.
