Welcome back to my monthly blog for The Minnesota Project, which is a blog circle I do with a few other local photographers. We share our experiences and pictures of different places we visit exploring the great State of Minnesota. As a photographer I am involved in many different photography groups and meet ups, one of them being clickinmoms.com which I have been a member for many years. They do an annual meet up called clickinwalk, where groups of photographers meet up on the same weekend all around the world. For the last few years I have helped co-lead this event here in Minnesota in the St. Cloud area. This is a fun event where you can walk around taking pictures with other photographers (of any skill level) and then afterwards we usually end up going out to eat and have a few drinks. This year we started at Barden Park walking our way through the SCSU campus leading us to Lake George where we ended the walk. It was a gorgeous day and the buds sure were blooming!
One of my favorite things about meeting up with other photographers besides the obvious getting together with others that share the love and interest of photography, is to see all the different images that are captured. We are all taking pictures in the same area but the images are usually so unique from one another even if it is of the same subject as one will have a different perspective from the other. If you are into photography I definitely recommend finding a group that meets up from time to time. It is so much fun to share stories, ideas, tips from one another! I get inspired when I am around other photographers, I’ll be sure to post reminders for next year and would love it if you joined us on next years clickinwalk.
Be sure to circle through all of the other Minnesota adventures, next up on the blog circle is Jo Davis! If you have any suggestions of where I should go next please let me know, I love trying out new places!
