I was one of 28,290 people yesterday taking part in in Scott's fourth photowalk.
I joined the Bishops Stortford group, with Andrew as our leader. Andrew was carrying some serious equipment. A Canon 5D MarkII, along with an envious choice of lenses.
He even carried his iPad on the walk.
There were 12 of us, at the beginning. But by the end Tasmin and I were the only women. Tasmin, thankfully decided to join me at the last minute. I was so pleased, as I am not a great landscape photographer.
Our walk took in streets, country paths, a walk along a tow path and some industrial areas. Everyone was interested in shooting different things. But I must say, Tasmin was a great success, as our group model. We had her climbing into trees with a group of photographers snapping away at her.
We even had a dad and his young son, James. I took my chance several times to snap a few images of James. He was a bit shy at first, but after he had sneaked a few photos of me, he didn’t mind at all.
We even walked over a VERY busy train line at one point. We had to dodge three trains.
across some fields.
And along a tow path
That’s the group up ahead.
We all chatted away, you know me I can talk……….
I even got to play around with the big boy that is the Canon 70-200mm lens I covert. Our group leader,Andrew, asked me to take a new portrait shoot of him, with his impressive lens and Canon 5d Mark II. Boy was it heavy. I’m very pleased to see he is using the image already.
Just us two girls joined some of the boys afterwards for a drink. It was a perfect end to a wonderful day.
Here are some of my favourite images from the day.
and my absolute favourite of course is of Tasmin.
Andrew will pick his favourite image of the day to win a prize. That’s why my images are so varied, none of us know what type of image will take his fancy. He’s a bit of a HDR freak. You’ll have to look it up if you don’t know what it is. I couldn’t bloody link anything to the word, so I gave up.
