Phoenix Photowalk Lesson #2 – Get Left Behind

by Kristi Hines · Arizona, HDR, Phoenix


Continuing my series of lessons learned during my first photowalk in downtown Phoenix, the second thing I learned was that you shouldn’t worry about getting left behind to the point that you let go of what feels like a perfect shot.

Even though I was sure that several other people might have gotten it, I saw this perfect alignment of a chair and other miscellaneous items in a green lit alleyway with the backdrop of a barbwire fence. But by the time we caught up with the group to part ways for the evening and returned to the scene, everything had been moved around and the chair was taken.

So instead, I was left with this shot from earlier.

So not all was lost, but I think my idea would have been a good one. My other favorite while leaving the scene was this rusty fence and parking restrictions.
