People I met at the One by One TX Instameet
When I compared myself to my peers, I don't consider myself an outgoing person. I am often shy to take the initiative to talk to people I first meet at gatherings.
I have been to all kinds of gatherings, and I still missed quite a few opportunities due to my schedule. Sometimes, it can be fun, and maybe too much fun! Sometimes we were waiting for somebody to break the ice and it was certainly awkward.
I found that I usually have better luck at an Instameet. People who attend are usually passionate about taking pictures. We can easily open a discussion because of shared experiences. During the last Instameet, which was right after the One by One TX show, I decided to focus on photographing portraits. There are many people, I didn't get a chance to say hi to everyone even though I have been following some of them.
It was a great experience I will always want to attend an Instameet whenever I can. The Instagram community is full of creativity and very supportive of each other. So here are some portraits I took and I hope you guys like it!
