Halloween 2010

Hands

This year at a Halloween dance, I made scores of photographs of costumed participants using the “Hip Shots” technique. The “shoot-from-the-hip” method, executed without concern for focus and framing, produces a lot of waste and the occasional dynamic picture. In this case I thought the free-form technique was especially appropriate for the subject. The following post is the last in the series. Meanwhile, you may like to tap the “Hip Shots” tag in the toolbar above for examples from the regular Hip Shot series, which post each Friday.

Legs

At a Halloween swing dance this year, I made scores of photographs of costumed participants using the free-form “Hip Shots” technique. The “shoot-from-the-hip” method, executed without concern for focus and framing, produces the occasional dynamic picture. In this case I thought the method was especially appropriate for the subject. The following post is third in a series which will appear on this blog each Wednesday in November. The fourth and last entry in the 2010 Halloween series, titled “Hands,” will post next Wednesday. Meanwhile, you may like to tap the “Hip Shots” tag in the toolbar above for examples from the regular series, which post each Friday.
