Snap and Spin – Hunting for Pictures

Posted on June 24, 2011

I thought it was cool that RC Concepcion wrote a similar post to this over on Scott Kelby’s blog, Fishing for Pictures.

Lately I have been taking some time in the afternoon to ride my bike around town hunting for interesting photos. While I consider myself more of a portrait photographer, I am wanting to spend a little more time working on street and landscape photography. I also wanted to challenge myself during the times of the day when the sunlight was harsh and see what I could do with it.


I consider this an exercise in seeing. I wanted to work on composition and finding shots that I’d normally walk past without noticing. I am drawn to textures and lines, stuff that I could use as backgrounds or in composites. It’s been a lot of fun and I’ve gotten some exercise out of it as well.


I always like to find a fun and clever way to describe a project that I’m working on. Snap and Spin and Photobiking are probably the closest I’ve come. Unfortunately, I’m inherently drawn to cheesy descriptions.

Here’s one last shot of when I went down to check out the Grilled Cheeserie being featured on the Food Network.
