FTH while seated. As stated by others, from time to time, usually just playing with a different point of view though not a habit.

When traveling light I usually keep an Minolta AF-C in my pocket. Nifty little thing.

I've experimented with this some over the years, not so much because I was hiding--in fact they usually knew I was right there--but whenever you raise the camera to your eye, the mood/setting/atmosphere changes, and it's not the same as what inspired me to take a picture in the first place.

These are just a few of my experiments with this, admittedly amateurish....

Honestly no idea how I got this photo. I prefocused and kept track of my distance, and this was the only one of the night that came out.
Canon 50/0.95 wide open held up to my chest in the streets of Shinjuku.

With my D700 and 24-70G (no longer own, even though the D700 files were gorgeous - I just don't have a lot of desire to carry that kind of package around). Set the 24-70 to 35mm give or take and tried to surreptitiously take some photographs of my grandfather on one of our job sites.

I've been playing with this one ever since - I like the light coming in through the window, and it seems to work in different ways cropped square, 8x10 or full frame.

First try at FTH. The three ladies were having a picnic lunch outside the Basilica St Mark, in Venice among busy crowds. I walked past, spotted them, then scale focused, used sunny 16 for exposure and then set a reasonable dof. I walked back for the shot with the camera on its strap on my shoulder held in my rght hand and pressed the release with my thumb to take the pic.

Cool shot. I always like hearing the story behind the shot.

Shooting FTH is not something I do much. Here's a couple I came across in an old folder.
