Footbal hooligans go abroad Picture

Winning entry, with a score of:
58.4%
Contest goal:

Sometimes there are situations where it is hard, or awkward, to hold up the camera because we might feel embarrassed, but you want to make a shot anyway. What do you do? Right! You take a shot from the hip.
This contest is about this type of camera angle, and taking a photo within somewhat of a mass of people. The subject of the contest is "people who are unaware they are being photographed from the hip by a bystander." Good Luck!



Status: finished. Check out the winners below!

jawshoewhah: I LIKE this idea! The remote should come in handy ( 5 years and 2607 days ago )
MnMCarta: ok I love this idea but either I'm not seeing stuff at the "hip" level or ya'll have some looooong legs. LOL ( 5 years and 2604 days ago )
jawshoewhah: I think the point of the contest is to get the shots of people unaware they're being shot and "From the Hip" is just a good place to shoot it without being noticed. A lot of these shots don't really look like it was something you had to sneak. Mods? Could you clarify please? ( 5 years and 2604 days ago )
Contest Moderator: The shot has to be "From the hip" Literally. To clarify the "mass of people" The shot has to be amongst enough people for you to feel slightly uncomfortable to have your camera to your face. Or in a "situation" where you would feel uncomfortable putting your camera to your face.

MnMCarta: Thank you for the clarification ( 5 years and 2603 days ago )

The police did not react too nicely when someone took their camera out in this riot, so aiming "from the hip" was the only option. (5 years and 2604 days ago)
