Hip Shots

The “Hip Shots” series of 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 may be arranged as a post. If you’d like additional tips for using the technique, or to submit your own images, drop a question or note in the “Leave a Comment” section, below.

    Shawn, these are some nice shots. I especially like the first one, with all the angles and shadows, along with the bright sun, seeming to reflect the two possible outcomes for fans, in any game: a win or a loss.

    Thanks Jo-Ann. We had a blast there. On August 30, Dad made a Hip Shots post by one of my fiancés sons. Tate thinks a little differently, so he took a lot of pics of people taking pics.

    I saw those. The world is turning into a camera! Everyone’s taking pix with their smartphones. I have only a dumb phone.
