WEEK 42 of the 52-Week Photography Challenge
TAKE A PHOTOWALK
This might seem an obvious one for photography club members, but for those who normally shoot alone, then an organised photowalk can be a rewarding experience. It’s also a great idea for those stuck in a creative rut and seeking inspiration.
Walking out with other photographers, rather than non-photographers, gives you the chance to take more time taking your photos. You can afford to be geeky trying out different ideas, approaches and new equipment. You can enjoy taking a wide range of photos from people, to architecture and the natural world depending on where your walk is.
Your walk could be anywhere: You might organise your own and invite other photographers to join you on a walk just minutes away from where you live. You might join a walk in a new place to you; a village, town, or city perhaps.
A trip to a woodland location or seaside venue can be very rewarding for your photography when in the company of other enthusiastic photographers.
A photowalk can act as its own network with opportunities to discuss photography with others sharing the same interest. The spin-offs from a photowalk can be good too; make an agreement to keep in touch with your walking friends and share your photos on social media.
Your challenge this week: Organise or take part in a photowalk!
As ever, these challenges are to encourage new photography, so we ask you not to simply re-use your existing stock (unless necessary for the particular challenge).
And do please send in your images associated with these challenges – or your other activities as a Club Member. We will publish them on these pages.
