View Full Version : W/NW Best Guess
Let's see images where aperture, shutter, focus, and shot were done without any confirmation or viewfinder use: just setting the camera and shooting from the hip.

shot at hip level
This is one of my favorite photos of my father. He absolutely despises having his picture taken, so I have to be fast and sneaky. Here, he is telling me to put the effing camera away, while he is taking his sweet time making it through a steak. At this point I had already finished my pancakes about half an hour earlier. To me, it almost perfectly describes the moment. A moment I would have totally missed had I metered the light, framed and focused.
Kiev 4am, Jupiter 12. best guess exposure, scale focused secretly under the table, shot from just under my chin.
I like shooting in this technique
however it leads to many errs
but accidentally it produces very interesting photos
