France Paris and Italy 4507_3637.jpg
France, Paris.  Shoot from the hip.  Beforehand, think of your composition, then adjust your camera settings, like focal length and exposure. Using a wide-angle lens gives you more depth of field and a larger image to crop.<br />
This is a fun technique to use when walking through crowded streets. Also, try holding the camera over your head, an especially good way to expand the foreground. <br />
These two techniques are more naturally used with smart phones, where image taking is less serious and more spontaneous.
