Shooting from Completely Different Angles

11

What if you combine 2 of the 10 Golden Rules of Lomography? – Try the shot from the hip while not worrying about the rules…

I’m a really tall guy, and shooting from the hip with my Lomo LC-A+ doesn’t always give the right result. So what I do is I try aiming it a lower angle and sometimes I put the camera on the floor to get a completely different view on your subject(s).

    Wow, I like your shots and the perspectives a lot! I always forget to change perspective for a shot although 'I always try to remember to do so. I do think that the outcome is always so much more interesting!

    TEN AND ONE Residency Week Recap: Yoshitaka Goto (@gocchin)

    First of all, I really appreciate being able to join the TEN AND ONE Residency Week in Vienna along with super cool Lomographers! We could never have any forgettable memories. The members are 11 people from 10 countries. I thought it'd be difficult to communicate with each other because of our different cultures, languages, personalities, etc. But we didn't have any worries. We respected each other, above all we are Lomographers!
