What were the topics in A'dam?
You are out there. You and your camera. You can shoot or not shoot as you please. Discover the world, Your world. Show it to us. Or we might never see it.

You won't be able to tell from the photos I posted (I like to take the liberty to shoot what I like as well) but the topics were:

1. I finally became an old guy (anton Corbijn)
2. On Track
3. Not close enough
4. Noise
5. Body language
6. Warm

and an optional one-photo theme: Water in the City

The most challenging thing is that you experience pressure to come up with ideas quickly. My biggest mistake was trying to find multiple interpretations instead of sticking to one interpretation and then shoot three variations to create a series. My other one was that I got distracted by scenes that interested me. ;-)

Funny, because I thought it was something about bicycles

Depending on where and when I'm interested :)

Reminisce the good old Art School approach of tackling themes a bit with a bunch of nice people. Sounds like there might be good coffee involved

I also took a bunch of photos that I wanted to take ;-)

I could have shared my selection for the themes but, as said, each series wasn't really consistent so I decided not to.
