Fifty-Two on Friday – “From the Hip” (3/52)

It’s been awhile, but I’m back to doing my Project 52 assignments. It’s a new year, time to push myself to take better photos! This week’s assignment was to shoot “from the hip”, a trick that Jamie from Cowbelly Pet Photography taught us how to do at her amazing workshop some time ago. It’s hard to get down, I took hundreds of photos and only a handful came out, but when it works, the results are awesome! Here’s an update on Sundance the chocolate lab that was adopted a couple of months back. He’s much bigger and SUPER hyper! A lot of photos were just a giant blur, and every time I kneeled down to look at the viewfinder he would jump at the camera. So in this case, the shooting from the hip method was the perfect solution. And luckily, he was extremely food motivated and we were able to get him to sit still for .5 seconds.
