The connotations of either ‘hiding’ or ‘bowing’ have been noted by many famous photographers. The standard SLR camera makes you ‘shoot’ the subject while hiding your eyes and most of your face. In body-language terms, that can appear aggressive. Many older camera s, such as the Rollei, instead made you look down into a camera hanging at stomach level. You’d bow your head before the subject and bring your shoulders slightly forwards, while cradling the camera in downward-pointing hands – almost an attitude of submission or prayer. This non-aggressive body-language probably made many portrait sessions more comfortable for the sitters, as well as enabling the making of better candid street photography. Now the zigview add-on gives digital SLR users the ability to look down into their viewfinder.
