Sometimes you do not have enough time to get the camera all the way up to your eye and properly watch the subject through your viewfinder. When that happens you have to resort to shooting from the hip.
This is something that I hate doing. It is a last ditch effort and often does not yield great results.
But sometimes you get lucky.
After making images from the upper deck I run down to the field in between innings and get down there during the middle of a big play. I handhold my big glass and shoot off one frame just in case without having time to look through the viewfinder.
The photo gods were on my side and I made an image.
Until next time, take care!
