My First Photo Walk

Wikipedia defines photo walking as the act of walking with a camera for the main purpose of taking pictures of things that the photographer may find interesting. Saturday morning witnessed my first photo walk.

A couple of mates & I planned to capture the blooming relishes of Bengaluru city (still feels odd to deviate from Bangalore). But we ended up capturing a lot more. I was also pleasantly surprised by the good time I had over this boys outing.

  • Firstly, the early morning walk is much healthier than the usual beer sessions that we resort to for boys bonding.
  • I learned a lot about photography from my mates.
  • You read it in photography sites & books – clicking is the best way to learn. I got to practice quite a few things that I have been reading about.
  • Once in a while its also good to get a feel for how your photography is progressing. For me, crisp clear pictures are still a struggle, composition techniques are a conscious effort yet, need to start experimenting with RAW format & post processing might be something to play around with.
  • Lastly, the photo walk was a good lead into what turned out to be a great weekend.

Looking forward to planning my next photo walk.
