Visiting Chinatown in Philadelphia with Clickin Moms


f/4.0, 1/1000, ISO 125

This past Saturday, I had the opportunity to meet up with some local photographers that I had met through Clickin’ Moms not too long ago actually. Despite my shyness, I made the journey to Philadelphia (along with the hubby, of course) to meet up with some lovely ladies. Despite me being intimidated, considering I know how talented they are and I’m still just an amateur photograph, I think I managed to get a couple of great shots that day. The photo above was one of the first photos I took while I was in Philadelphia’s Chinatown. The sun was already starting to set and I think the angle of everything works well together. I’m trying not to look at the photo too critically considering I’m so hard on myself when it comes to how my photos come out, but I think this one is pretty decent. Anyway, I had a fantastic time despite my nerves and hope to get together with the group again soon so that I can continue to learn from watching them–it really is amazing to watch them by the way, I learned so much just from watching it’s amazing.

I am still learning. So feel free to provide me with some constructive criticism in the comments below.

    AnonymousHow fun that you met up with some CMers! I was in Philly last summer but didn’t spend any time in Chinatown, just saw it from a bus tour I took. I think your picture looks great!ReplyCancel

      AnonymousThis was actually my first time actually in Chinatown. I did the bus tour too when I visited last and we drove through Chinatown, so it was nice seeing it up close. And it was a lot of fun to meet up with fellow CMers!ReplyCancel
