Smoking Girl – ISO 250, 35mm (equivalent), f/5.6, 1/60 sec, Fujifilm X100T, Handheld
While on a photo walk in downtown Victoria, B.C. I came across this girl smoking on the sidewalk. I asked to take her photo, then sat and talked with her for a bit She is studying to be a Doula.
Nothing fancy with how I shot or processed this image. I did some adjustments in Lightroom and that is it. One of the simpler images I have posted on Pixelbip. There were some slight color and sharpness adjustments, then I did a slight crop and that was about it.
Growing up one of my biggest dreams was to explore the world. Honestly I never thought this would become reality. But at the end of 2014 I quit my job as a project manager to do just that. I sold most everything I own, packed up the remaining boxes in storage, and set out to see the world. My goals while traveling are to meet people everywhere I go, work on becoming a better photographer, and attempt to stay where the weather is not freezing. Along the way I am posting photos at Pixelbip.com and writing about my experiences at EarthToKeir.com
