CameratossGet ready to throw your cameras up in the air, folks, and… well.. do your best to catch them. If not, well, that sucks. But hey! It’s all for the sake of art, so… :)

From the Cameratoss page at Flickr:

This is a “technique” group, and the technique here is regarded by some as insanity. For we are the reckless folks on flickr that enjoy the abstract, chance, generative, physical photography that results from throwing our cameras into the air (most often at night in front of varied light sources).

It is about trading risk for reward in the pursuit of art. It is not about being a photographer, it is about enabling the photography that happens naturally when you let go of the process, give up control, and add a hell of alot more variables. It is about physics, gravity, angular momentum, acceleration, direction, chaos, and timing… most of which you have tenuous control of at best!

Very interesting stuff in the gallery. Dare to take the risk?
