…It’s TGI Friday: Camera Toss?

Camera Toss

This weekend, grab your camera (or your friend’s camera), set the timer, and toss it in the air for a new style of photography called Camera Tossing.

The results are often a beautiful art piece that is less about documenting a moment, and more about creating an emotional picture that is filled with color and motion.

Check out COLOURlover’s article on Camera Tossing for a brief history of the technique, and some fantastic examples that should give you more than enough inspiration to get going.
