Hip Shots


By Jim Sizemore

The “Hip Shots” series of Doodlemeister.com photographs will feature images that were grabbed “on the fly” with little or no regard for framing and focus. The object of the exercise being to create dynamic pictures, not perfect ones. With this ” shoot-from-the-hip” method, the more frames  exposed, the better the chances are that you’ll come up with something interesting—a related series that can be arranged as a three-image post. If you’d like additional tips for using the technique, or to submit your own pictures, drop a question or note in the “Leave a Comment” section, below. Meanwhile, click on these images for a larger view, and click the “Hip Shots” tag above for more examples. Tune in next Friday for another post in the series.

  1. Hi Jim, I’m a huge fan of your “Hip shots” series. I took some “hip shots” at the Baltimore ComicCon this weekend, and some of them are pretty cool. I’d love to share them here.

    Wonderful, Christina—send along the “cool” ones! Having seen your blog (and being aware of other work by you) I’m confident we’ll be able to come up with a “hip shot” post or three. If you have specific ideas for sets and how to present them, let me know that, too. I’m really looking forward to our collaboration . . .
