Monday Muse - OutofChicago


Let’s be honest…the most macho of all enthusiast photography is Street Photography. The mere mention of street conjures uncommon courage, superior skill, and iconic images plucked from the chaos. It’s a split second examination of one’s manhood…with rote rules [to ignore] and whiny naysayers at every turn. 

My OutofChicago Photo Conference consisted of an all day workshop and three photowalks, all by internationally recognized instructors. I was there with a chill attitude to meet some people, have some fun, pick up a few tips, and bust a bunch of frames in a different location. In my free time I wandered around looking for images with layers and complexity that conveyed a sense of place, perhaps to lofty a goal for three days on the run in new city.
