One of Lomography’s golden rule is to Try The Shot From The Hip. I guess we should not stop at #10, or go lower than the hip, ya?
Lomography shots has always included the Shoot From The Hip concept as one of its signature shots. Why not go lower?
Chinscraping, ant’s eye view, rat’s eye or simply floorshot – this enables your photos to capture a different perspective taken from the ground. Simply flat down your LC-A, Holga, or even Horizon Camera base on the ground, point your viewfinder to your desired subject… and push that lever!
I recommend using this technique in reflective surfaces, like airports, malls, or even washed out roads after a heavy rain. It’ll sure pop interesting angles and viewpoints on your shots. Capture a series of images from the ground, literally how a rat sees predators going its way. Look out for people on bicycles, busy streets , tires of a moving bus, a subway tunnel, or even somebody’s colorful boots!
So, here’s your next assignment – on your next roll, remember the Ten Golden Rules… and bend those knees!
