It’s easy to slip into the habit of taking photos from eye level, 5’4” in my case. How the world looks different shooting from the hip at the camera’s eye level of 2’6”. The technique truly is point-and-shoot.
There’s a sense of freedom from not having to look through a viewfinder nor look at a screen on the back of a camera. Just wander around concentrate on seeing and observing. A subtle movement of the wrist, a press of the thumb, and the moment is captured. Head to a café, have a seat, and be surprised with the results. Click on a pic for a slideshow view.
