“We do not take pictures, we are taken by pictures” Ernst Haas
Forget ‘shooting from the hip’, the theme of our next challenge is ‘shooting from the knees’.
Sometimes, as street photographers, we may find ourselves feeling a little stagnant and we may desire to travel away from our usual environment (a new town or city) to find fresh inspiration. However, when that is not possible, changing our perspective can offer a refreshing change.
For this next challenge, we invite you to get low – squat, kneel, lye of the earth, put your mobile phone on the ground – but, have your camera lower than your knees (or thereabouts) and shoot from that level, or, turn your camera upwards and shoot ‘up.’
We hope you enjoy this theme and look forward to seeing your results!
A recap of our rules and procedure for entry:
For the challenge please only post FOUR photographs to our Flickr challenge site on the link below, and in your title or description include ‘Shooting from the Knees’
Please posts photos for our monthly showcase here:
