Scott Kelby's World Wide Photo Walk - Thoughts/Exp

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 13, 2016, 4:46 AM



So on Saturday last week I decided to spend the morning In the Melbourne CBD walking around with a bunch of other photographers . It was a total blast but before I get stuck into the details and experiences I just want to thank Alan Rogers who ended up having to step in after the original leader of the walk had to pull out for reasons. He did an excellent job leading us around and had plenty of time for everyone. You can check out his work here.

So the morning started off pretty rough, I was up late trying to make sure I didn't forget anything and had all my batteries charged, all the gear packed. I even uploaded what was on my memory card so it would be clear for the day... Thus the trouble started.

I woke up late due to being so tired so I grabbed my pre-packed bag and headed into the city to try and catch up with the group only to walk for ages and get way ahead of where they were! So I doubled back and finally caught up with the group. Said my hellos and pulled my camera out to start shooting. It was then I noticed that i couldn't review my images which led to finding out that my memory card was still in the card reader back home! disaster!

Luckily the camera stores were still open despite it being the AFL grand final day. Picked up a more suitable backup SD Card (after the 2GB backup i had in the bag filled up within 15 minutes). Once I was back shooting it was pretty smooth sailing from there. The route they had us walking was long enough to see all different kinds of Melbourne but short enough that I wasn't completely dead from the walk.

We ended up finishing the photo walk at the Queen Victoria Market. This was my first visit to the market and it looked like it would be a blast to explore. After some lunch I called time on the day and headed home to edit some photos!

 

 

 

Things I learned:

1. Get a good nights sleep!

If your planning on spending a solid amount of time out and about shooting, going out tired is no fun. the walk although at a nice casual pace still will wear you out and getting a decent sleep will help with that.

2. Prepare the night before.

Packing your camera bag the night before was a good step that I took but I found that my late night rushed my and prep made me miss a few things and in some ways over prepare. I found that some lenses I took with me I didn't use at all. Keep it pretty simple if you can as that backpack will feel pretty heavy at the end of a couple of hours.

3. Don't be afraid to branch out!

It's easy when walking along in a group to start shooting a lot of the same things that everyone one else is shooting. Just because the route your walking says you will be walking down one particular street doesn't mean you have to stay exclusively to that street, feel free to explore all the nooks your city has. Hit up the lane-ways running off that street.

4. Ask away!

Don't be afraid to ask questions of the people that come with you on your photo walk. A lot of these people are just as geeked out about Photography as you are and are more than happy to discuss that bit of glass you just bought, or that new body that was just announced. Some of these people may even have advice for how to improve your own photography, either from a business perspective or from a visual style perspective.

5. Why so serious?!

Also, It's a photo walk. You may get some awesome images or you might not, but the most important thing is to go out an have fun and meet some new people and/or scope out some interesting places to go back to and shoot. There's no point in going out and ignoring everyone for the sake of getting an image or turning it into some competition. 

Hopefully this helps anyone looking at going to future photo walks, I would love to hear other experiances about either the recent photo walk or previous ones they have gone on.
