Throw Back Thursday: Google+ Photowalk w/ Trey Ratcliff

Back in 2011, when Google+ was only available through invite, I went on my very first photowalk. I was, still am, New into the world of photography so I though that this would be a great experience. And it sure was!

The photowalk took place on the campus of Standford. There were a ton of people that came out for this photo walk, big names and everyday people like myself. Thomas Hawk was there and it was pretty cool watching my buddy Joe Ercoli about art and his personal project that he was working on Flickr.

I learned that there are a lot of friendly and helpful photogs (photographers) out there. Many of photogs like to talk gear and techniques. I also learned that I needed a tripod as the day got darker.

Here’s one of the photos that I took from the photowalk, the James H. Clark Center:

The photo with my camera resting on my camera bag. I don’t know the settings and what it was shot with (I’m blogging from my phone so I don’t have all the details on me). All I know is thatthis was one of my first attempts to HDR. The photo is eh, it’s a decent start.

Standford is an amazing and gorgeous campus. I can’t to go back and take pictures of there. I’ll probably need a whole afternoon on the campus since the place is so vast.
