photo meet-up : thoughts
with all of the technology at our fingertips these days it is easy to be inspired by people all over the world and to share whatever, whenever. i follow people on instagram in england, canada, greece and of course, barbados just to name a few places, and as much as i am inspired and enjoy seeing and scrolling, i can't help feeling the need for something else.
some people may be wondering, 'what is this meet-up all about?' so i thought i would elaborate a little for those who are interested! meet-up/meetup, defined as: an informal meeting or gathering. i like casual, relaxed... informal, it is even how i describe my photography style. my thoughts on this photo meet-up:
1. designated time : time is precious and if you are anything like me, you need to allocate a time to do/practise something. photography is an art and i do believe that there are things that need to be practised if it is to become easier.
2. be inspired : i believe you can find beauty everywhere, sometimes you just need to look a bit closer, slow down, notice. hearing what moves someone, what speaks to another, a reminder that we all hear and see things differently.
3. to learn : ask questions, try new techniques, practise!
4. to teach + encourage : i certainly do not know everything there is to know about photography but i am happy to share what i do know or you may have some tips or thoughts you would like to share with others.
i'm looking forward to getting together with other photography enthusiasts, i hope you are too!
