Hip Shots

Flag Change V

By Jim Sizemore

(Click images for larger versions.)

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 is 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 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 the “Hip Shots” tag above for many more examples. This feature will appear most Fridays.

    It’s always a good photo-op when the rangers change the flags at Fort McHenry, which they do twice a day. Hard to go wrong when the setting winter sun back-lights the flags. Since I walk there almost every day, winter and summer, I have lots of opportunities.
