About This Walk

UPDATE: We’re only a week out from our downtown Denver photowalk. I’m really excited to meet everyone and spend the morning shooting in one of my favourite areas in Denver. Look for me at the top of the Capitol stairs. I’ll be there rain or shine….

———————————————

We’ll be walking from the Colorado State Capitol through the downtown area ending at the beautiful Union Station. Downtown Denver is colorful and has a lot of attractive old buildings & architecture to photograph, in addition to great street photography opportunities.

I’m a digital artist & photographer based out of Denver & Antarctica depending on the time of year. I shoot with a Canon D5 and an iphone and create colorful digital composites with my photos. You can see examples of my work on my Instagram account: @studio6or7

After the walk we can meet in the main hall at Union Station and share photos over a beer or glass of wine.

I do most of my photo editing & compositing on my phone using apps. If anyone is interested in learning how to do that, I’d be happy to stick around afterwards to show you how to do it yourself.

I’m really looking forward to the walk and hope to see you there. This walk will be happening no matter what the weather is- sun, rain or snow!

Submit Photos for ContestOctober 13th, 2018

Good morning everyone,

It’s hard to believe that it’s already been a week since we met up for the walk! It seem the photo submission deadline is upon us. I’m so sorry, but the instructions were a bit confusing earlier but I’ve clarified with the photowalk site. There is actually a place on the site to upload your photos so you will actually need to submit them directly on the site rather than email them to me. I apologize for the confusion on this. I should be able to see all of your uploaded photos next week and then submit one from our group.

I hope you’re all out shooting this weekend and enjoying the fall…

Thanks,
Andrea

It’s nearly Worldwide Photowalk Day….October 3rd, 2018

Hi guys,

We’re only a few days away from our photowalk. I’m really looking forward to meeting all of you and spending a couple of hours shooting photos downtown with you. It looks like we should have decent weather for walking & shooting.

I wanted to just give you a couple of ideas of things to perhaps think about for our walk. Since we’ll have enough time to shoot a LOT of photos if we choose, and there will be an infinite number of things to shoot, you might think a bit about reigning it in and setting some parameters for yourself. I like to come out of a photowalk with a series of images that feels cohesive and represents the day, even if it’s only 3-6 final images. One easy way to do this is to pick either something to focus on, and then look for that, or to set up a constraint for your shooting.

I often will pick a color and look for that, or a shape, or things like people sitting or moving, or corners of buildings, or window reflections, or, or, or… It could be anything. It could be a couple of things. I like to do this because it gives you a little more focus and something interesting to look for. And in the end, it can tie your photos together. Another easy thing to do is to set a constraint for yourself. This can also be a good way to get photos that tie together. You might set a constraint of only using one lens or only shooting in portrait mode or something harder like only shooting images that have a triangle in them, or whatever you can think of.

You don’t have to do this of course, but it can be a fun way to do a photowalk and help create a series of images that feels a bit more tied together. Just something to think about.

I’m super excited about our upcoming walk and can’t wait to meet you all! If you have any questions in the meantime, you can reach me at: studio6or7@gmail.com .

See you on Saturday…
Andrea
