Being the new kid on the block in Seattle, and not being super comfortable networking at luncheons and by other traditional methods, I have been thinking of ways to meet people and to spread the word about my business that would feel natural and organic. I have always enjoyed photography, though I have never taken a class. And I love street style photos by The Sartorialist and others. So, why not try street style photography here in the Northwest? The style here is vastly different than what you see in Dallas, and I think it would be cool to try to capture it. Seattle, as one of the fastest growing cities in America, is quickly becoming a melting pot of cultures and fashions.
I have bitten off more than I can chew, honestly. Professional photographers make it look easy, and these days everyone with an iPhone thinks they are a pro. But there is no going back now. I bought a nice starter camera by Canon and a 50mm prime lens that was recommended by two professionals. Below are a few photos I have snapped recently in practice sessions.
I will definitely need your encouragement and a lot of courage to approach strangers on the street once I feel I can capture some decent photos. Wish me luck! Have a great weekend!
