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.

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
