Yesterday afternoon I went to my first Meetup with the Sydney Street Photographers group. Just imagine about 70 avid amateur photographers on the loose in the streets of one of our multicultural suburbs. I learnt some handy hints and met some great people and went a long way to overcoming my shyness when it comes to asking total strangers if they minded me taking their photograph. It was much easier with the moral support of others doing the same thing.
I have also been learning how to watermark my photos. I will get better at it. Meanwhile, here are some of my shots of the streets of Fairfield in western Sydney.
Edit: I went back and figured out how to make the watermark less obtrusive on the last shot. I resisted doing watermarks for a long, long time but unfortunately in todays world, they are needed. i made it opaque to 70% and angled it to fit it in. I'll be using this method from now on.
