52 on Friday (Week 3): From the Hip

This week’s 52 Project theme is “from the hip,” which refers to shooting without looking through the viewfinder. This method takes a lot of skill, luck, and rapid shooting but when it works out, it produces some seriously cute, quirky — and oftentimes funny — photos. Here are some of my favorite shots on which I have utilized the “shoot from the hip” method.

Be sure to check out Melissa McCabe’s blog with Unleashed! Pet Portraits to see her take on this week’s theme… then follow the blog ring all the way around until you get back here! I have a feeling it’s going to be a fun ride!

    These are just awesome photos! If a person doesn’t smile when looking at these, they need to take an inward look!
