The photography group that I belong to at work recently set a challenge that I enjoyed immensely: Shoot From the Hip. I took this to mean any image taken without framing or composing it through the viewfinder or back screen and without a tripod or support other than your hand(s).

Show me your uncomposed, unframed images.

One last caveat...the image can be processed but cannot be cropped

I look forward to seeing what you all come up with.

This challenge begins when posted and will end at 7PM PST, Tuesday Oct 23, 2018. The winner will be announced shortly thereafter.

CHALLENGE RULES:
1. Camera: Any DIGITAL CAMERA is allowed, (not just DSLR)
2. Time: Any on-topic photo taken at any time is eligible. Photos that have won other competitions should NOT be entered.
3. Size: See standard P.O.T.N. Image Posting Rules.
4. Post Processing: Do whatever you like and the host will decide if it works (remember, no cropping!)
5. Posting: ONE PHOTO per photographer in each challenge.
6. Details: Show camera model & lens used. Post brief EXIF data including ISO, shutter speed and aperture used.
7. Commenting: Please, NO COMMENTING DURING CHALLENGE feel free to comment in this thread after a winner is declared.
8. Content: Keep it clean, and both Family and Work safe.
9. Have questions? PM me.
10. Have FUN!

* THE WINNER ALWAYS SETS THE THEME FOR THE NEXT CHALLENGE, POSTS IT AND JUDGES IT - BE PREPARED! A new challenge should be posted ASAP after you have been declared the winner.

Benitoite – good shot, I’m assuming that you took this from the hip, on the back of a scooter?
teekay – I like this a lot teekay, it tells a bit of a story
dilorenzo1954 – I’m surprised that she didn’t react to you taking the photo Ed, you must have been pretty close
OldCrow – that’s great Don, a shot from the hip of a shot from the hip!
just whistle – I love the sky in the background of this image Leslie. Where is Highlands Ranch?
shep207 - you have three things that appeal to me shep, I like triptychs, I really like triptychs that a bit of a story and I love triptychs that have a bit of a story and a have a moody impressionistic feel…but, like you said, you were too late… :p

Results

#1 OldCrow – I can’t resist the double shoot from the hip…:lol:
#2 teekay
#3 Benitoite

Take it away Don!

Congrats to OldCrow, Teekay, and Benitoite.

Highlands Ranch is a suburb of Denver, Colorado, darkslinger. This shot is one of my first attempts at blind shooting and I was thrilled it came out so good. Most of the photos were throw-aways, lol.

Thanks for the 3rd place... it was taken at my hip while walking, crossing a Saigon street on foot, so as to not startle people on the road. That’s a commonly crossed piece of road but it is not controlled by signals. It is out of politeness that the people driving avoid pedestrians.
