During last weekend, I had spent half my Saturday with the other three friends joining a photography event, Photowalk 2.0. The event was joined by a variety of people: colleagues, professional camera operators and those who passionate about photography. Starting around 8:00 AM until 12:00 PM, we were touring around the busy streets and locations in Phnom Penh such as Russia Market and Central Market. During each stop, we have a limit time to capture the beauty of our people and our country.
As someone who loves photography, I was so honored to be a part of this event. Since I had never captured the live action before, it was a little challenging for me. I was having a hard time adjusting the camera and capturing what I want with the right settings in a very short amount of time because everything only happens once. Once. That’s all the chance I got to capture a good moment or expression of the subjects. However, throughout the journey, I was able to improve my speed of changing the settings and capturing the moments.
Overall, I was glad to participate in this event where I got to meet many skillful photographers. Also, it was so much joys going from street to street, location to location and see what people are doing as their daily lives. It was a beautiful experience.
Below are just some of the photos I took on that day.
