So my default genres is travel photography. With a good mix of street photography, the odd seascape, and long exposure.

I'm planning on doing a bit of nature photographer to stretch me. You can do a lot with a standard zoom lens. But I'm going to use this as an excuse to try out a 100-400 Fuji lens. Wex rental https://rental.wexphotovideo.com/ has a really good deal for weekend rental, so likely to use them. My aim, to submit a nature shot to the nature competition in February!

What your plan?

Alright, street photography... A definite challenge for me. Might take a while to get the courage to post on here. Watch this space though... :lol:

Laura, happy to keep you company for street photography. Best tips I got are;
Go out with a plan eg; take a picture of someone looking at you; get someone to agree to have their picture taken. Something with yellow.
Allow a bit of space to allow the magic to happen. Eg someone to walk into the frame.
Take a step closer...

Hi Sarah
I was thinking of candid shots, not a pre arranged scene. I would probably try and wait for someone to walk in a scene I visualise, but who knows! I feel it might be a grab shot for me - if it happens.

Other area out of comfort for me will be the studio, e.g. the fashion photography on Wed evening, eeeeek
:shock:

All good fun!
