Because I do you know, pap I mean. For at least a decade now! By which I mean of course take photos of people (extended friends mostly) out at parties or clubnights or in the park or somesuch. It’s fun to document what’s so easily forgotten, and people are much less self conscious after a couple of drinks.
About a year ago I got into making the hundreds of pics I take a week better, first through working on them in Lightroom, then by swapping my ultra compact pont-and-shoot TX5 for a Lumix G3. A nice prime lens and a big flash followed and BOOM they’re not bad.
It’s nice to suck less but I’ve still got a ways to go. To that end I set up a facebook page: Danpaps, to showcase the club type photography to friends, randoms and clients. I’ve even had my snaps projected on a wall at a club this past Sunday night. Strange times.
