The “Hip Shots” series feature images that were grabbed “on the fly” with little regard for framing and focus. This group of photo-murals were pasted in strips on the sides of huge corn syrup storage tanks in Locust Point. You can view them up close from the Under Armor campus.

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.
