A last minute Photography Club meet up was held at the Alley of Light. A community event called Art 4 the Alley was going on today. It was a day of painting and entertainment. I hung around for the painting and stopped by later to see all the finished works of art. It was unfortunate that I could not stay for the entertainment.
Who painted these pieces of art you may ask? – Anyone who walked by and felt like painting. There was some beautiful and creative art made today. I can’t wait till the next Art 4 the Alley :)
I was definitely out of my element today. Anyone who visits my blog knows I don’t photograph people much and never that many people at once. I have learned a few technical and compositional things to improve my photography. But the biggest thing I practiced today was asking complete strangers if I could photography them. It helps that they were all out going and friendly people. :)
This first picture I really like. But, its because I like it so much, that all the errors I made stand out and yell at me. It is the one picture that is making me the most critical of myself. I knew I should have had the shutter speed a bit higher and I knew I was using the wrong lens. I ended up crawling into the back of a van, to get far enough away, for this shot.
But all in all I had great fun. It was a sunny, hot and beautiful day and I meet some great people :)
