Friday Photowalk Tip

Time for another Friday Photowalk Tip and this one coincides with the new theme list for October.   The tip for this week is to fully explore something.  Take a look at the list for October and see if you’re inspired by any of the words (if not,  choose something of your own liking).  Try to find 5 good illustrations of the theme (or technique if you prefer).  It will keep that photographer’s eye sharp as you push yourself to look around seeking something to fit a chosen goal.  It’s already got my mind going – I’m leaning towards seeking out Orange, Tools, or Hanging images.

Friday Photowalk Tip

Time for another Friday Photowalk Tip and I’m in a colorful mood right now, so for inspiration I’m pulling out a tip we used earlier in the year.  Choose a single color and seek it multiple examples that really exemplify the color – not just a little hint of the color, but something that really shouts out your chosen color.  It might be a bold and obvious shot of color in a contrasting background, or the image might be overwhelmingly saturated with shades of your chosen color.  In any event, make that color the obvious focal point of the image.  Its a great way to make yourself look around and see things you might not normally see when seeking out images to shoot.

Friday Photowalk Tip

A short work week here in the U.S. following our Monday holiday and I almost overlooked the fact that Friday is here already – a detail I almost missed.  So this week’s tip is to “pay attention to the details” when you take your photos.   Capture the whole essence of the scene, but don’t forget to focus in on some of the important details too, like clasped hands, the bride’s bouquet, a baby’s fingers etc.  Show us a series that includes those important little details.

Friday Photowalk Tip

This Friday’s Photowalk Tip is a sort of follow up to the recent Question of the Day on staying motivated.   Sometimes you need to just make yourself grab your camera and go shooting.  So this week, if you’ve got inspiration block (or even if you don’t), set an appointment with yourself and head out with the sole intention of taking pictures.  Give yourself a destination (such as the beach, downtown, a local park or maybe just your own backyard) and spend some time walking around just seeing the area with your “photo goggles” on.  Push yourself to get back in the swing of things, and come back and comment on your experience.
