10 Tips for Enjoying a Photo Walk


This guest post on Digital Photo School by Tiffany Joyce, gives her ten tips for enjoying a photo walk.

There are a few reasons why I think photo walks are a great idea. Personally, my sense of creativity is boosted by movement and exposure to changing scenery. When I’m by myself I see my surroundings from a different perspective. When I’m with a group of people I enjoy seeing things from their perspective. I am challenged to use my photographic skills and tools in a different way and react to changing situations. At the end of the walk I take pride in the new discoveries that I’ve made.

This year I’m joining Scott Kelby’s World Wide Photo Walk (http://worldwidephotowalk.com/). It’s a global endeavor, and it can seem intimidating to wander a locale with a group of 49 other photographers, most of whom you’ve probably never met. I’m looking forward to meeting so many new people, but it’s also perfectly okay to start much smaller. The great thing about enjoying a photo walk is that it doesn’t have to be a formal, structured occasion. You can be by yourself or with a group of friends. You can wander streets you’re deeply familiar with, or explore an area that is brand new to you. The whole point is to get you out there, exploring your surroundings, exercising your creativity and taking pictures.

With that in mind, here are ten tips to enjoy photo walks 10 Tips for Enjoying a Photo Walk
