Shooting from the hip

Shooting from the hip
Candid in a brightly coloured and cluttered clothing store/Shoot from the hip. Have to say I really did not enjoy shooting from the hip. I would never do it with the SLR and you have to be so steady using mobile phone cameras, so focus is really difficult. I normally don't mind taking candids but this was awful! I only took three shots, one was of the floor :-) The other two were just about passable and this was the best one. HDR version. Original is in the note on this image.

TSC Perspective... if you see something you would normally shoot... go from a different angle or time of day or camera setting. Step a bit out of your comfort zone.

Not the most enjoyable challenge for you this week Gillian ... but you stuck with it!!! Quite a colorful store as you say ... that little girl(?) between the woman and the other girl has found something to wrap herself up in! lol

Hopefully the next challenge will be more enjoyable! :)

Thanks Chris. This was a topic for an online photography course, and they suggest that shooting from the hip is an effective way to achieve good candids. I prefer to have a little more control over the composition :-) I also felt even more like a spy.

I feel your pain, Gillian; it's hard to do something different with a camera. But you managed to do well "shooting from the hip" :-))

Well done! I have tried this before when I was attempting to be inconspicuous and most of my shots did not come out.

Turned out really well......the processing makes it sing, and the perspective with the people at the end works so well
