Last week I went on a photowalk over the Brooklyn Bridge with B+H Photos. It was a bit disappointing as it was disorganized and I really didn’t get much out of it. However, they had this “model” who was posing for everybody at one of the stops. Here she is in front of the Brooklyn Bridge, which is an amazing work of Architecture. Constructing this bridge was a huge undertaking – full of challenges, accidents, deaths (including a stampede that killed 12 people) and the attempted selling of the bridge in various scams.
On another note, I can’t believe we made it through six months of this project! I have never tried anything like this before, as I have a history of interests coming and going. Through these past months of being snowed in for much longer than any winter I can remember, having my foot in a cast, and other challenges, this has kept me focused. I’m also much more of a “left-brainer” so the theme and goal of a daily photo has provided just enough direction to make it not overwhelming (although at times I am uninspired).
I came here hoping to improve my skills in both photography and processing, both of which I knew NOTHING about. It has been a tremendous learning curve, helped both by the forum and the other people in this challenge. I even bought a fancy new camera. All of you have helped inspire me and teach me so many things. While I definitely appreciate your encouragement and compliments, I’d like ask you all again to give me real feedback! Please – I mean it! I love it when people have suggestions such as cropping, changing exposure, different processing, shoot it from a different angle, etc. Of course much of it is subjective, but your advice is always welcomed. I won’t be offended or insulted if my photos don’t “speak” to you. I promise.
And now, back to posting……..
