About This Walk

We will photograph at many locations all within a 3 block radius of our starting point. Expect to photograph architecture, monuments, street photography, outdoor portraiture, close-up and abstract photos with an emphasis on originality and creativity. You may even become a model in one of the pictures so dress the way you would like to look. You should be able to walk up to 1.5 miles, very leisurely, during the hour and one half. Tripods are acceptable but in the interest of time they will not be useful for most of our shots. Any camera, including smartphones will work for this fun time! While I am mostly a landscape photographer, I enjoy being creative for my fun shoots.

You might get more out of the walk it you complete this form prior to Saturday: (copy and paste into your browser): https://www.robstrain.com/pre-session-form

If you are coming with a single lens, something like a zoom lens 24-70 full frame or 18-55 cropped sensor might give you the most flexibility, but feel free to bring your favorite. If you are coming with a smartphone only, that is still good!

Those interested may wish to stick around for coffee and socializing at a nearby spot afterwards.

 

Congratulations Patrick and Judy for your Photowalk images!August 30th, 2022

Hi Gang. When you are a judge of photos with such different themes you come to understand why it’s such a challenging job. I solicited the opinions of others and looked at the winners from the 2020 contest. It appears that some human interest perspective was an advantage previously, so our winning entry was the Renegade Sheriff taken behind The Palace because it expresses something (what is for you to decide). I particularly like that he was rendered in monotone. My favorite image from a technique standpoint was the “Boots” that we started with. The tones and bokeh were superb. The garden scene is well composed, balanced with shapes and colors and would likely be the most likely image to end up in a magazine. I think I would have selected the candid shot of the two kids looking at the bug had it been taken at a kid’s level. This was an outstanding “find” during the Photo Walk. Thanks to all of you who participated and especially to those of you who submitted images. If you have not already done so, please go online and vote for our group. From the dashboard select “Gallery”, then select our walk (“Downtown Prescott”) and the pictures should come up where you can vote. Click on the hearts! Ask your friends to vote also.
My best to you all, Rob Strain

Photowalk Contest SubmissionsAugust 14th, 2022

My understanding through the Photowalk website is that any contest submissions begin tomorrow, August 15 and run through August 26. The group leader then has until September 2 to choose one submission for the contest. I expect there will be a link to submit starting tomorrow (Monday). Best wishes! Rob
