12 hours, 4 checkpoints, 6 themes, 18 photos, 1 city
My legs feel like lead but I'm so happy to have completed the feat in 10 hours. I thought I would finish sooner but what the heck, the themes were quite challenging! I was struggling with two themes and halfway through the race, I thought about giving up but I powered through it and now I can proudly say that I have completed the race.
Here are some of the things that I have learned:
- It's hard to do street photography if you're scared of getting close and approaching people. I am afraid to approach strangers to take their photo because I am either scared of offending others or getting rejected.
- There are so many techniques and the only way to learn them is through practice. I wish I had tricks up my sleeve like using reflections or mirrors or using shadows.
- It's hard to shoot in black and white. How do you convey warmth or color when you're shooting in B&W? I think it's very challenging but it does push one's limits and creativity!
I was so intimidated by the other participants because they brought in professional cameras and I, an enthusiast, was holding a tiny, mirrorless camera. Nonetheless, I thoroughly enjoyed the photo race! It was an awesome experience because I learned so much about myself, my camera, and street photography. So without further ado, I would like to share with you some of my entries a.k.a. my favorite shots from today. :)
Which one is your favorite? I hope you enjoyed this entry and I wish everyone a nice weekend. Til next time. Doei!
