Photography is something I've been meaning to try for years. But it looks rather intimidating, especially since basically everyone is a photographer nowadays so I guess it's quite hard to do anything special. Good birds.

i think you just need to take photos for yourself. i started so i have some excuse to go to nature etc or leave the house more in general and if i get 1 out of 100 photos that i like its a success. i think i would like to photograph people more but im very introvert and finnish people in general are very reserved so it would be hard times

Yes exactly. It's a good excuse to go out in the nature, and surprisingly often you see something interesting or unexpected. Also while looking for such things, you tend to start paying attention to little things that you would probably not even notice if you were just walking, running or whatever. Just stop for a while here and there to mind your surroundings, look and listen around. And indeed you can take photos just for yourself, that's what I do most of the time.

Interesting you say that, because usually people point out how photographing everything takes away from the experience since you're focused on some superficial digital record instead of simply embracing what you see. Cool insight.

There are both sides to this imo lousk. People going to gigs to only stare at the screens on their phones not only annoy others, but also miss out on the experience themselves. But yeah, on the other hand, I always take pictures when travelling, and most of the time take a few random ones during a gig, just to be able to relive those experiences later (to an extent) =)

I just hate that all my friends make me pose for snapchat pictures all the fucking time. I mean seriously does anybody give a flying fuck about what mundane things you're up to at all times? I hate it.

Bothering people by holding up screens in crowds and nagging them to pose for photos are a different issue. Also it often sounds liek Ruben just hates his friends. =D

I'd say I hate my friends slightly less than I hate everybody else.

coal tropic!1 :bear:

It would be nice if someone made up a list of 100 weird things to photograph and see how long it takes us to complete the list together. For example, I took a photo of a cockroach that had impaled itself on a cactus (that's probably too specific, but not something you see everyday).

Setup google docs where people can brainstorm things to photograph, shouldn't take long to reach a list of 100. Then first finishers can link their photos teer
