Sometimes Shoot Blind


Sometimes take wide-angle pictures without looking through the viewfinder or at the screen. I frequently point the camera in the direction I want and snap a photo without looking at the composition. This makes it easy to shoot photos from below knee height or at full arm’s length. While walking my dog, I held out the iPhone in my left hand and guessed at the framing. This is the un-cropped result. Don’t think you always need to see what you’re shooting before clicking the shutter. You may snap a gem.
