My "shooting blind" technique
Took these two images around the house with my "shooting blind" technique. It puts my camera where I don't want to put my head, or body sometimes. I don't have "live view" either, in fact I find that feature a bit annoying, so I really can't see what I am framing.
Sometimes it works well, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes things really surprise me, like in the top image where I had no intention of framing the background with the oval bend in the wire. I like it though.
Also, these are two consecutive shots, one right after the other from opposite directions. When it works it usually works the first time. Use the force, Luke.
