Photography Buddies

10 Feb


I like taking my camera and a buddy and heading out for “photography field trips”.

That term used to have a slightly different meaning for me: Along with teaching writing skills, I used to teach the very basics of photography to children, and often took them to parks, historic sites, the mountains, or just down the street, seeking interesting subjects to shoot. (Sounds gory, doesn’t it?) The kids were a fun bunch, often more giddy than patient, but when they slowed down a little and concentrated on truly seeing the world through a camera lens, they could take awesome shots.

However, my favorite field trip buddies are my dad, brother, and eldest niece. We’re all very much amateurs, but what we lack in knowledge or skill, we make up for with enthusiasm and copious photographs.

Not only do they make good photography buddies, they’re also excellent travel companions.

But that’s a story for another time.
