Established in 2013 by MainStreetHost and taken on by Alex Luyckx Photography in 2015, #photochat is a community of photography professionals and enthusiasts who congregate to talk shop and discuss anything and everything photography. To participate in our weekly chat (every Thursday at 1:00pm) search the #photochat hashtag to see the conversation, or find me at @AlexLuyckxPhoto on Twitter for more info. Be sure to include the hashtag in your tweets to answer the questions and talk with the other participants.
Our Topic for today, 30 September 2021, is all about those images you cannot help but photograph! Shooters gotta shoot!
Question 1 – What is one thing you can’t help but photograph any time you see it?
Question 2 – What is it about this subject that you consider irresistible?
Question 3 – Do you have an ultimate purpose for taking these photos, or do you just do it?
Question 4 – What have you been able to notice or learn over time?
Question 5 – Share any photos of this subject you cannot help but photograph!
