Yes sir, that is blind shooting!
Ohhh this sounds FUN!!! I'm so glad I logged on to find out the challenge
Here are three blind shots that I took this afternoon whilst out walking. I set the camera to automatic for exposure and manual at infinity for focus.
These are SOOC. The framing was guesswork. I have more: this is a great challenge and lots of fun!
My bud called up with his new purchase. I thought a perfect opportunity to blind shoot. He is pretty stoked about his purchase, as am I. To be transparent, I shoot this way a lot being a street photographer. I crop and straighten a lot. My goal when shooting this way is depth of field. I preset my camera using the sunny 16 rule, I use either shutter priority or aperture priority dependent on what I'm doing. At the end of the day, I am a 100% viewfinder guy but blind shooting, it enables me creative control over the entire frame if I'm on my game.

The grand's birthday party. I took the Sony RX100iv today for video and switched into photo Auto mode which I think has a Wide focus area. I held the camera above my head and pointed down at the group. Not cropped.
JC, I really like the 2nd, 3rd and 4th.
Thanks. The first one was from the hip and for reference.
Eyes straight ahead. Camera out the window. Morning on a country road in VA. No crop but a little bit of tweaking. Also noted later that there were some dried rain spots on the filter so will be a little more attentive in the future.
Can see that I've not done this kind of thing, in a serious way, in maybe 10 or 20 years?
Yesterday, a rainy day with an enormous amount of gusts, it was 'Koningsdag' in the Netherlands, the King's birthday and in the big cities there are all kinds of festivities, singers and dancers etc. and - such as in Amsterdam - all over town hundreds of spots where everyone can sell old things in a street stall.
In our village it's never that wild, there's some music and children sell, always with their parents present, old toys, books, clothes etc. Took my old Canon G9 , both hands together and half under my sleeve, and tried to produce something. Switched off the direct "view" function so as not to be tempted, at home I was only able to see what it all had become. ISO 1600, all pix made in the same wide-angle setting.

Here's two original pics to show how much crop was needed...

Father watching. I cropped for composition (shot a little wide for challenge) and straitened this image. If I didn't pop this off at the belly, I would have missed it. D610, 70-300 VR.
Some nice ones here GK.
