As I let go of the idea of doing any photography from a left-handed perspective, I attempted to do what would be my more typical photographic work. I recognize that I'm out of practice, which includes the courage to be audacious, but I grew frustrated with my high end point and shoot. Even with the "controls" that I have on my camera, I got irritated as I waited for my camera to do what I wanted it to do. I know how to trick a point and shoot to create depth of field, but this also became a battle with the auto focus and slow response time.
Most of my photography is people oriented and done at a conversation distance. That's what I mean about being audacious. You have to be willing to approach someone and ask to take their picture. You have to be willing to enter a conversation with a complete stranger in order to get a relaxed photograph. This is not a bad photograph, but it could be so much better. I had to stand at a distance and zoom in to get a more shallow depth of field, which made him more like a display in a zoo. I don't like that when I'm going for a more intimate photo. I would rather have a more intimate interaction with him.
...anyway, I recognize it's time for me to suck it up and buy a real DSLR if I intend to truly revive my photography.
