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.

Treat.  Now.  Ah, good human!

Crooked due to facial paralysis (on the left - her right), this photo almost makes her look straight again.

I promise Mom, I didn't do it!

Okay, what's with the camera??  How come I can see your face still?

As this is a blog roll, please visit Ali Peterson's blog at Skyy Blue Photography Blog and keep going through the links until you end up back here.  Enjoy some fabulous photos!

Your kids are freakin' aDORable! Not that you didn't know that - LOL! Your captions are perfect for the shots, too - I thought the exact same thing when I saw that shot of Grace. Give them all a big kiss from Auntie Peggy. Oh, and your knack with the assignment was on-the-spot. Nicely done!
