Sign up for a Photowalk.
What is a Photowalk?
According to the Wikipedia definition, “Photowalking is the act of walking with a camera for the main purpose of taking pictures of things that the photographer may find interesting.”
While you can certainly go about photowalking on your own – and are heartily inspirited to do so whenever possible! – in recent years it’s become an annual event in towns and cities across the globe to encourage photographers, amateur and professional alike, armed with the picture taking device of their choice, outside on to the streets to capture the spirit and life of their communities.
For anyone interested in photography, a photowalk is definitely worth participating.
For any photographer whether your shooting with a basic point & shoot or a professional DSLR, heck, even your phone, photowalks are a great opportunity to share in the joy of photography. It’s a chance to meet other photographers, learn new ideas and concepts and builds confidence.
It’s also a time to have fun and try new things.
As photographers, we all see our world a bit differently. When a group is shooting the same subject or area, the images almost always have a different angle or perspective. It’s a unique chance to see how others see, and share how we would approach the same subject or area. It’s also a great opportunity to challenge ourselves to see all of those things we probably drive or walk past everyday in an entirely new way.
Photography is a never-ending learning experience. Even after shooting most of our lives, we still continue to grow in our pursuit of creative images.
And, getting together with other keen photographers is most enjoyable!
