Saturday I had my first Eat & Snap gathering. I had been a little nervous into the run up, never actually having taught anyone what I know. We met at Village East which is on the loveliest little street in Bermondsey. After having regular a ol’ chat with the snappers over brunch I felt relaxed and some friendships had already been formed. After eating I handed out some ‘tip cards’ explaining camera settings and rules of composition and showed some camera examples.
I had planned to head down to Borough Market but we were told by the restaurant manager that Maltby Street was just down the road so we decided to head down there instead. My weather mojo had worked well and although it was overcast (which is actually great for a bit of street photography) the rain that the weather man had told me would be happening all week never materialised. I had heard about Maltby Street Market but hadn’t been so it was really great to see something different. It is only one small street but it is packed with good food and awesome little restaurants under the railway arches. I’ll definitely be heading back to check some more out. The snappers headed off, got sidetracked by purple walls, and details, asked a couple questions, had some points clarified, looked styling in stripes and colours and snapped away.
All in all it was a great day and as a bonus I got some great shots of some styling hipster locals and a cocktail. I’ll share later this week. I’ll also link up any thoughts from the snappers involved, but you can follow some thoughts from instagram and twitter if you like.
