One of the nice things about being a part of the online network of Twitter is “following” a bunch of interesting people & companies. While some can argue that it’s got a horrible conversion rate (supposedly many people who sign up don’t last thirty days with it), I’ve actually had a great experience with it and have found it a very great resource. One of those resources is Michael Zhang of Petapixel (@petapixel). He recently posted this link about how to overcome “photographer’s block.”
Today, I took that “100 step” challenge listed on the Photocritic blog.
“The 100 step challenge is one I’ve promoted here on Photocritic before – because it’s one of those things I’ve found work incredibly well indeed. It’s easy: Grab your camera, and start walking. Count your steps. After 100 steps, stop where you are, and where you’re standing, you have to take a photograph.”
Here’s what I came up with while going for a walk around Burlington this afternoon & trying to take a photo every 100 paces:
The man featured above is Andreas Wvoorl, an Estonian, who stopped me on the street and asked of my photos. Andreas, a drifter who enjoyed “talking shop” about photography, lamented that “some puke” had stolen his own camera and laptop.
