For the past several weeks, I’ve been meeting up with an amazing group of people from EastLake to discuss all things photography. It’s been a really fun experience. I’ve discovered how much I enjoy sharing my passion with others and how it feeds my soul in a way I never thought possible.
Every other week, we’ve dabbled in new subject areas. Today, we drove down the street from where I live to visit one of my favorite spots, the Paradise Valley Conservation Area, to put our “nature photography” skills to the test. While photographing nature is not my favorite subject (I’m too much of a people person), the fact is that nature often plays a huge role in how I photograph people.
Sometimes, I think it’s necessary to photograph things that don’t normally entice us. It’s challenging on a creative level and forces us to stop and just look closely at something. Here’s what I saw today.
