shooting from the hip

I'm constantly looking for inspiration of trying things out a bit different. Shutter Sisters is the perfect place for this and if you are a photographer and haven't checked it out...go now!

One of the topics recently is shooting from the hip. Pat does this all the time and gets some pretty funny shots of me usually making some crazy weirdo face. I tried it out this weekend at the lake as I was trying to keep up with Zane as he ran to towards the lake with his big ole life vest on. I needed one arm to grab him if ran onto the pier too quick so I thought shooting from the hip was perfect.

Here I am trying to keep up with him!
