Every picture has a story to tell

You want to stay trim and fit? Take up photography!

Yup, that coming from a guy who took up photography as a hobby merely months ago.

Truth is, I realize that I’ve gotten somewhat fitter ever since I took up photography. =)

In fact, I managed to  shred a kilo or two of fats off my body!~ 

Perhaps the amount of exercise from my normal routine – the walkabouts around my neighborhood has allowed me to burned fats faster then having yours truly jog around the park 3-4 times a week! lol

And so, besides  re-discovering my beloved neighborhood, it seems that photography has also unknowingly bought me another benefit –  enabling me to slim down too! (Hurrah!! I can now finally eat more hamburgers without feeling guilty =P )

Every single walkabouts that I have never fails to delight me hence, I would like to share with all some of the shots that I have taken in my recent “exploration” again. ^^

Loved this red! So vibrant !

 Another lovely flower that’s red in color =)

Alright, last pic of the post and a little quiz.

Who can tell me the owner for the set of paws in the picture above ?

A.) Dog

B.) Cat

C) None of the above

Although there is no prize for getting it right! =P

    Hi there, thanks for visiting my blog today.. I agree with your thoughts – I think photography is better than the gym for getting you moving about and into all sorts of ridiculous stretches!

      Hi settleandchase,
      That’s right! It’s goodbye to gym and hello to photography for me now lol

      Hi, apronheadlilly
      Bingo! =)
      Guess I should have made the quiz harder … everyone seems to get the answer so easily lol

    Beautiful pictures! I used to also do what you are doing. I love going around the neighborhood and taking pictures of anything that catches my fancy. ;-)

      Hi Malou,
      Thanks! Yep, I think that’s a really good hobby to take up =)

      Hi Mascara and Mud,
      I’m thinking this quiz is way tooo easy and I’m going to make the next one tougher already ;P

    Very true. I move a lot more when I am in photo shooting then work out in a gym. Get even more tired after each photography session.

    • ishooteditnblog
      June 2, 2012

      And I think I need more photo shooting sessions before I can take images that can be as great as yours! =)

      • chiasw
        June 2, 2012

        well to be honest, your photos are great too!!! Simple and nice. really enjoy reading your blog and your photos inspire me a lot.

      • ishooteditnblog
        June 2, 2012

        “… your photos inspire me a lot.” – I am so going to frame this phase up in my room. (Joking ^^)
        Thanks once again for your awesome compliments! ;)

    So true… It keeps me on my toes too and I get to venture beyond my familiar zone for some photos. ;-)

      Hi eof737,
      That I agree, have also felt more adventurous when armed with a cam. ^^

      Glad you like my humble shots! =)

        Also, thanks for pointing out that photography is good for one’s health! I’m not big on jogging, but I’ll happily go on lengthy walks/hikes with my camera. It’s a great point!

      • ishooteditnblog
        June 2, 2012

        No problem, I share the same thoughts as you! =)
        Ahem, well it’s also a convenient excuse for me to get a little lazy for not exercising! ^^

    I love your photographs – and no, I cannot help you with the paw prints.

      Hi Colline,
      Thanks for your kind comments and also attempting the quiz! ;P

    It’s so true… You get fit being a photog! Have you done a wedding yet? Usually I can’t stand up for at least half a day after I shoot a wedding! It’s a full body, mind, soul profession.

    • ishooteditnblog
      June 3, 2012

      Hi Kansas Love Bird,
      I have yet to attain the “level” to do a wedding shot yet ^^
      Hope I can a chance to do it in future ! =)

    The contrast you chose to highlight your subject is a great compliment! It really draws the viewer into the shot. Photography is an art, and you’ve proven it on several levels.

    Wow ! Nikon D5100 takes good pictures ! of course, the most important is the one who’s behide the camera, I wish I can take good pictures like you do, I have the same camera and havn’t started using it.

      Hi Oli,
      You are just too modest humble, saw some of your shots and all of them looked awesome! =)

    Damn I was going to say dog paws then saw you already gave out the answer. I agree photography does get you out walking about and getting fitter.

    • ishooteditnblog

      Worry not 12thsonoflama!
      I’m going to made the next quiz harder for all to guess … :P

    Hello and thank you for the visit and comments, much appreciated! Your blog is great, Im following it:) Have to agree with the fitness issue, my current job is at a desk but for 2 weeks before Autumn/Winter and another 2 before Spring/Summer, I take photographs all day, and boy do I lose weight! Good stuff!

    It’s so true, if you want to get in shape, take up photography. I’m a product photographer, and I used to shoot jewelry for a local designer. I always went home really tired after a shoot. Talk about a good way to build muscle strength!

    Since I’ve moved to London and have started exploring with my camera I have also lost some weight. It is a great way to get to know a neighborhood and to stay healthy. Great photos.

      Hi TBM,
      I agree that its a very good (and healthy) hobby to have! =)

    Lovely photography, and congrats on the weightloss. ;) Definitely big dog paw prints.

  24. Natasha
    June 16, 2012

    That is actually very true. As for me – it forced me to take on weight lifting – I bought a professional, weatherproof camera, which is very heavy. To take it on long hikes requires a lot of stamina :)

      Hi Natasha,
      Thank you so much for sharing your personal experience on my humble little blog! =)

    I agree that photography is physically challenging! All the crawling around I do on the ground and the chasing after my toddler with my camera has me exhausted. :) Worth it though!

    • ishooteditnblog
      June 17, 2012

      Hi Naomi,
      I agree with you, its very rewarding, especially after a day’s of photo taking and you start admiring the pictures that you take =)
