The first photo was the most difficult. Making the choice to start somewhere.
The more we walked the more I wanted to show the life in the Old City Cemetery. People tending plots, work crews weeding, flowers growing, people wandering through on a slightly sunny Saturday. There is so much history and color here.
They are all straight out of camera (SOOC).
A few things I am taking away from this photowalk:
- slow down to see your photo and think through your settings
- know your subject, I really wanted my wide angle lens to show the context of the setting, but had chosen my 70-200mm lens instead
- wind is not your friend when shooting flowers
- stop and just listen
Did you join in the 9in90? I'd love to see your photos. Link me here or share in the Flickr PhotoWalkWithMe Group.
On another note, did you notice the strange thing I did with my photos? Completely out of character for me!
