‘sharpen the saw’ is one of Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. In photography, that would mean we shoot regularly to hone our skills, or it may also suggest we perfect something that we failed previously. To the avid, photographing street style comes as soon as the camera is strapped to the neck, which I do! As random as it can be, we follow our instinct to shoot as soon as there are opportunities of good subjects and/or interesting scenes to capture, at the airport, bus terminal, in the plane, at touchdown, in the jeepney-tricycle, hotel vicinity, etc.
photowalk with my DAAN group
When available, I join my friends and photo groups in scheduled photowalks, but most of the time I venture alone especially when on travel assignments.
So I am one of those who would go out in simple plain clothes, black tees, jeans, good comfortable rubber shoes because it is the feet that bears the pressure mostly. As for head covers, i put on a simple cap to cover from the sun, and sun flare. I leave the wearing of shawls to the journalists, i never felt it necessary to wearing them as i feel it creates a strange impression that you are actually battle-ready [!?]
with SAPI / Sony Alpha Phils. Intl. my main camera group
so what’s in the bag?
1.medium sized soft canvass sling bag with adjustable shoulder straps. an olive-green salavatorre MANN, economical, enough to carry either a big dslr or a mirrorless camera. It has outer and inner pockets for various storage and securing purposes. 2.3. Sony Nex6 camera. Black, small enough to keep me unnoticed. Extra Batteries. extra SD card.
4.5.6. Coin purse + Money. card for meals and other extra expenses worth a half day walk. iD, of course, for emergency purposes. 7.8.9. mobile phone, earphone. cap 10. that green pair of shades was lost somewhere! so i am now using a black one, and a white one too
