52 project: from the hip

This week’s 52 project assignment was from the hip, a photography technique where you are more or less shooting from around the hip without looking through the viewfinder at all. During a fetch session with Milton, Roger, and foster Skipper, I went out to fulfill this assignment. I didn’t look through the viewfinder for all 316 photos on a 8GB card, but as expected I deleted about 90% of the photos which were out of focus, or just photos of the grass.

Overall, I thought this was a pretty interesting challenge. It made me realize that I have a lot of practice with very posed photos, but less so with the candid photos such as the ones shown above. I think photo sessions have room for both posed and candid photos and this is definitely a method worth spending more time on to perfect.
