You Can Learn a Lot During a PhotoWalk…

Today’s Post by Joe Farace

…but not what you might think…

One of biggest misconceptions many photographer have is that a PhotoWalk is like a moving workshop but it’s not. It’s more like one of the “Coffee and Cameras” sessions that are sponsored occasionally by my main website’s blog where different photographers get together to share ideas and tips. The big difference is that we’re walking while we’re doing it. (You can bring your own coffee.)

I have been trying for a while to get a monthly PhotoWalks scheduled to be held in conjunction to the Cars and Coffee events held (weather or not) at The Vehicle Vault in Parker, Colorado, which is where these image were made. So far there is a gap between my good intentions and reality but I won’t give up, since Cars & Coffee season is ready to shift into high gear.

No, a PhotoWalk is not a workshop but simply and excuse to get out make some pictures, meet some people and maybe just learn something new along the way, even if it’s just a better way to use the camera you have or maybe try a setting you never used before.

These days, even though I haven’t officially launched a Cars & Coffee PhotoWalk, I’ll bring along a new camera or lens that I’m testing for this or my other blog and will let attendees shoot a few images on their own memory cards. I always learn something new during these events and so will you but more importantly you might just make a new friend.
