Seaside Walk and the Y2PC

A few weeks ago, it was my first time to join a meetup event of the Y2PC (Yoko-Yoko Photo Club). Meeting new people scares the shit out of me. Being an introvert, I always felt that it was really hard to connect with new people. During social gatherings, usually I would end up talking to the people I am most familiar with to avoid the humiliation of being a loner. In this event however, I came alone. No familiar friends to save me so the nerves were pretty high. What I didn't know that these people are genuinely nice and very friendly. At the end of they day I was happy meeting new people who share the same passion for photography as I do.

The group met at Kamakura station around 1:30 pm but I think we started shooting around 2pm which was really a terrible time for landscape photography. Most the people were doing street photography, a talent which I clearly lack. So, I tried my best to follow and imitate most of their shots.

Below are some of my shots that I think turned out ok.

I tried shooting the photographers as well. I also find people taking pictures very interesting. Here are some of the photographers of the Y2PC, all of them really nice people.

As the sun went down, I become more confident with my shots. I love shooting during the golden hour as it brings magic to your photos without you even trying hard. By this time, my nerves are all gone and I was just enjoying the company of photographers and the lovely scene.

Hopefully soon there would be another meetup event for Y2PC as I really enjoyed the Seaside Walk .
