I do love to take my camera and go out for a walk, and search for interesting spots or people to shoot. I love to see the results, do some edit, play around with the picture, try to make the most of it. But somehow, I also feel the need to share those pictures. Sharing your photography is not about ego, but a great way to learn, and get feedback from other photographers.
I do usually share my pictures in some photography social networks. You can find some of my works on flickr or instagram. I am also always taking pictures to illustrate my other blog, HolaTaipei, a guide to Taipei in Spanish, although many of the pictures for the blog are taken more for the sake of illustration than for art or feeling purposes.
Recently I found two important assignments which allow me to find new ways to share my photography.
First of them is a simple assignment that I got from my blogger colleague Eurowon (who writes a wonderful blog about South Korea). He coordinated some Spanish bloggers living in different asian countries to publish a calendar for the year 2015, each month displaying an image from the countries we live in or a picture from a travel to other asian country. My contributions were a photography of Qishang, a nice rural village in the east of Taiwan, and the portrait of a waitress smoking in a backstreet in Singapore.
On the other hand, I am preparing a photography book together with my colleague Ana (meet her at hana-muv), a project we have been discussing and working in for a while. I hope I can bring some more news about this book soon, but for now, as a starter, I can share one of the pictures that I plan to include in the book.
By sharing your photographic work, you will not only get those feeling-good likes from friends, but also very valuable feedback from people who also share your passion for photography.
