Project 52 – Week 3 – The Hip
So, another week into the year brings another Project 52 assignment. I have to say that I have enjoyed these assignments immensely. What a fabulous way to think outside the box, which is most definitely not my forte!
This week’s assignment was to shoot from the hip. I had no idea that this was a method of photography – I thought it was just a comment to make about a person that is a straight talker. I probably shouldn’t admit this, because it makes me sound a little bit dense, but it’s true. Shooting from the hip is a form of street shooting where the photographer holds the camera at hip or waist level and shoots upwards. People don’t tend to notice the camera as easily, and so it’s a bit easier to get more candid photos. It’s not an easy way to shoot, because you can’t frame your shots, so you have to depend on post-processing to achieve your desired look.
I had a fabulous time taking these pictures . . . so thank you for suggesting this.
