A pretty extensive feature on the camera tossing technique and phenomenon was included in this issue of JPG Magazine which is finally shipping. Included was an interview from myself, comments from the community, photos by myself and community members, and they even re-published a version of the Camera Toss HOWTO.
From JPG's website about issue 6:
There's magic in mistakes. There's something special in the spontaneous. Because it's in those moments when photography becomes more than just a document. It becomes something real.
This issue of JPG is about your best "Oops!" photos. Whether it was faulty settings, old film, the random photo on the last frame of film, or the last photo a camera ever took, this issue features some of the finest slip-ups, freak-outs, and happy accidents ever captured on film or pixels.
We're also joined by featured photographer Rion Nakaya, who shares some of her favorite serendipitous moments, and Ryan Gallagher, to talk about camera toss photography.
We photographers can't help being detail-oriented. We notice things. Our eyes can't help but frame reality. It's what we do. But it's always good to be reminded that control is an illusion, and sometimes the best photos are the ones that sneak up on you.
