So I’ll admit it, I have a problem. I like to shoot things, lots of different things. With a camera that is.
One of the things I hear time and time again is to find a niche and stick to it. And yes, I agree, when seeking clients, that makes total sense. But outside of that, I enjoy capturing many, many things. If you follow my photography you’ve probably seen a photo or two of flowers.
I recently led a photowalk with the Seattle Flickr Meetup group, we do a couple of events a month, including a photowalk and a social night. This months event was at the Ballard Locks. The location offers gardens, a fish ladder where you can most often see Salmon, plus the locks themselves which allow boats to move from the fresh water to the sea water and more.
Along the walk I found these lovlies, captured with my awesome Fuji X100s.
Along the water I waited for this boat to move from one water way to the next. This shot for me was all about timing. Look for my next blog post where I’ll talk about that a bit more. This was shot with my iPhone5s and edited with vscocam.
Being a part of and leading a group like this over the years has been a lot of fun and a great way to meet other photographers in my town. If you want to network and get to know photographers in your area, consider finding groups like this. And if you’re in Seattle, join us for an event sometime, we’d love to have you join us!
