Have you ever been in a situation where you just couldn’t lift your camera up to eye level, but you wanted to get the shot? Sometimes, great results can come from keeping your camera at your side, and shooting without looking at the screen or viewfinder. Today, try to get some shots from the hip. See if you have a feel for what your camera is seeing when you’re not looking.

About Steve Troletti

I'm a Location Scout, Editorial, Nature, Wildlife and Environmental Photographer based in Malibu, California. I specialize in Nature and Urban Nature photography including Infrared Landscapes. The Bulk of my work takes place in the Los Angeles, California area, Greater Montreal Region, Canada, Switzerland, France and Varese in Northern Italy. Ethical wildlife photography is the main priority and focus of my work. A minimum disturbance of the animals, their habitat and the environment is my top priority. This applies as much to total wilderness areas as it does to urban nature environments. Ongoing education of environmental issues and building awareness for the protection of wildlife and wilderness areas around the world is what drives me to document the beauty that surrounds us.
