Insta Photowalk

It’s been a while since I’ve just taken the time to explore and take pictures around where I’m at, I’ve forgotten how much I enjoyed the Photowalks I used to do back in Utah… I may have to go about starting up something here in the near future if my interest keeps up, anybody interested?

Started out a bit basic, flowers, plants. The usual look at the ground, scuff your feet and take the picture.

Then you sit down, look around, and are like “HEY, the grill of this truck is a few inches away from my head. Click.

Of course, signs are obvious targets.

NO Parking. No Exceptions.

As is anyone else your shooting with.

Then it’s the number above your head.

And finally, having exhausting everything interesting, we start shooting at things on the ground again.

Hope you enjoyed,

Why I Shoot.

Why do I shoot?

It’s a question I often ask myself, and the answer has changed over the years, but I think it boils down to the challenge of creating. With photography there’s no limits, no end to the creative exploration, there’s always new ways to improve and better yourself. With the recent project I’ve started (Which you should take a look at here: to take 50 pictures of 50 people over 50 days with a 50 mm lens I’ve realized two things: I’m becoming more comfortable around people with my photography (asking them to do this or that and to let me shoot their picture), and I’m shooting much than just the images for my project. Since moving out here to California I’ve slowed down and I really forgot the passion I do have for photography. It’s images like these from people that have never modeled or done any sort of photography before that make want to keep shooting.

So for your viewing pleasure, Chris the Accountant:
