On Saturday, 3rd of November, the EyeEm Leeds Meetuptook place. The outcome was an album full of streetphotography, architecture and wonderful memories.
Here’s a recap from Graham Preston who organized the meetup:
We had arrange to meet on the steps of the Leeds Museum, on what was a sunny but fresh autumn afternoon. After persuading a passing shopper to take our team photo we set off towards the University campus to hunt out some sharp architecture and shadows.
There was a really interesting range of shooting styles within the group, with a mixture of mobile street photographers, more conventional rangefinder cameras and even a bit of film thrown in for good measure.
After stopping for a coffee in the cultured surroundings of the Leeds Art Gallery cafe, our fingers had defrosted enough to allow some quick uploads and then we were back out for the short walk to the historic Victorian indoor market. This was the ideal place to end our photo walk, as the light began to fail outside and the stall holders started clearing up for the night.
Our final resting place was the oldest pub in the city – with time for a couple of pints while we reflected on a successful afternoon shooting in the streets of Leeds.
As a group we got along very easily, chatting and sharing photo stories and taking time to pick up tips from one another – it wasn’t all shooting but great learning experience.
Thanks to all who participated:
