Practising shooting from the hip is a valuable technique for shooting instructors especially when they may need to direct a young shot onto a target. We often refer to this as "The hand of God" but it is useful for allowing the shooter to 'see' the barrel and target relationship.
I have seen my colleague and friend John Stephens repeatedly break 60 yard crossers and every target you can imagine from the hip. #shootinginstructor #shootinglessons #fromthehip #claypigeon #claypigeonshooting #clayshooting #12gaugeshotgun #12gauge #12boreshotgun #12bore #miroku #sportingclays #instructionaltechniques

2018 October Ontario A selfie, although I can’t really remember much about this shot. I was shooting into a storefront literally from the hip. It’s funny how you look at some photos and don’t give them a second glance. And then you do. I like the washed out colour and what is going on in this image. Is he taking the photo or am I?! #fujix100f #fujifilm #fuji #fujifilm #fujix100 #photowalk #streetphoto #torontophotographer #life_is_street #strolling #streetshoot #fromthehip #documentaryphotography #motiondesign #colourphotography #selfies #tshirts #whitetop #storefront #reflections #walking #downtown #toronto #compactcamera #desaturated #workouts #windows

Yesterday I was extremely fortunate to spend the day with a legend, @tonyvaccarophotographer Of the many things we talked about, geometry was was a topic of discussion. Meaning lines within an image. Parallel. Perpendicular. He calls it “order”. One of the many things I love about his pictures. Perfect symmetry. Study him and you’ll see. Today I was implementing after JetBlue cancelled my flight last night. Can’t wait to share my time with Tony. Stay tuned. Jamaica Street Station.

Mother and Child, Tourist Village, Thailand. Another example of Lomography? - taken from the hip with a little Lumix FX01 in 2006. A special moment in time captured while walking through their village. 'Lomography'. A photographic movement with a motto that reads: "Don't Think, Just Shoot." .

Apologies for another quote but a person I have kind of known for quite some time that I hold in high regard has recently encouraged me with my writing and compared my "from the hip" style with Bukowski, Fante, Kerouac and Balzac (OMG). I'm not sure it's worthy of such an accolade but it has made me meditate on whether I am a writer or a person who writes, as there is a difference. Maybe time will tell.
But it also made me realise that I not only need to write more (have more of a schedule) but I need to read more too. So I thought I would try and find some Bukowski and yesterday I stumbled upon this by accident (if coincidence even exists) and it reminded me that the universe always provides.
Also, whilst a little more discipline may be helpful, as my writing is very "stream of consciousness" (my English teachers also told me this was my style) I need to trust that my next poems will spring up in transmission when their ready. I am currently writing an epic poem that I was challenged to do a while ago that I was very resistant about but it came when it was ready. Its very personal and a work in progress. I might post the odd short story I have written in the interim but I think I have a few new shorter poems brewing too. So watch this space.

Thanks for your patience 🖤

Pigeon shit shield? Sun block? Sleep aid? It’s a popular move regardless. I didn’t even raise my camera when I took the shot of the sleeping taxi driver, so it’s a littlest out of focus, but I still like it. I do that quite a bit when I’m too timid to be seen taking a photo or just want to be surprised by the composition. Do you just go bump the guy if you need a ride?
