Camera Therapy: Alpha 10

It's been nearly 3 months since I've posted a Camera Therapy session... I remember the last time I shot, it was so liberating. Why I put the camera down for 90+ is beyond me. I assume it's normal for creatives to have dormant moments, especially when they're preoccupied with other task. A big goal of mine this year was to expand my audience on this blog, I was so focused on doing better than last year, so focused that I forgot people often visit the website not just for the lessons, but for the pictures as well.

Lately I've been talking to a friend, one that is very goal orientated, they know exactly what they want out of life and they're doing whatever it takes to put them in the position to achieve greatness. In a way, I guess I can say their story has motivated me, motivated me enough to at least get out the house and shoot.. Oh, it's also warm outside, which is odd for March.

I tried to record the photo session, this would have made me twice as productive, but for whatever reason the mount I use to attach my GoPro to my a6000 had a difficult time fastening. I was able to capture footage, however their is a rattling sound that completely ruins the audio.

One thing I'd like to point out during this photo walk of mine was how reluctant the subjects were when it came to having their photograph taken. In the photo with the group of 4 men, you can all see them give me a look, they were annoyed and unsure what I was doing, a few seconds later they went back to their normal conversation.

Same goes for the last few frames, the street worker initially put his hand up, but after a warm greeting and short explanation of my intentions he granted me permission to photograph whatever I wanted. Think about that the next time you go out and shoot.
