Life is full of directions, either directing or being directed, rightly or wrongly. The gist is that there is more than one way to your goal.
It seems that ages have passed since the last post on GXG. Some personal business has forbidden me to take as many photos and post as frequently. I have not quitted though, and even managed to win a humble prize in a local photography contest. An interesting thing is that the longer I stopped reading news about cameras and photography, the less I fancied new cameras, which was a good news for my wallet. While people are selling the GR in expectation of a new release soon, I still have to take full use of it. It is such a capable tool. Afterall, there are still three other cameras in the cabinet waiting to be used.
The scene presented itself when I walked past this sitting out area around a corner. How the light fell on the folk and his newspaper caught my eye and snap snap snap the camera shutter went. I have been taking photos daily still, and am brewing an idea for a project to enter into a photo contest. This Saturday I will be attending a prize presentation ceremony for finalists of a photo contest held by a local radio station. It feels good to put some value in the efforts I’ve been making as a hobby.
Don’t stop taking photos, mates.
One of the most common online images is of people walking in the street, which are so ubiquitous to the point of being monotonous. There is one dumb-proven technique in making one such shot that may stand out. It is shooting a scene where people are going in different directions. This always works.
