Just wanted to throw up the photos I took during the Glazer's Photowalk on June 8th to support Photography Center Northwest's "Chase the Light 2019" event. The walk was organized by Kate and meandered through Capitol Hill, from the PCNW studio, to Cal Anderson Park, and back. These are just a few of the photos I took along the way. I was feeling square.
It'd been a while so I decided to attend the Glazer's Photowalk on Sunday, Jan 13th in West Seattle. The weather cooperated despite being in the bowels of winter but it was a bit TOO sunny, creating harsh shadows and contrast for the outdoor exercise. I chose to shoot with my 85mm equivalent, the 56mm ƒ/1.2, allowing me to keep some distance between me and my subjects while permitting me to fill the frame with subjects should I choose to do so. The large aperture also allowed for shallow depth of field shots. To do so, I used a 6-stop ND filter, giving me the ability to shoot with a shutter speed that prevented motion blur despite the bright, cloudless skies. It also gave me enough leeway to add blur by drilling down the aperture only a bit.
