Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photo Walk
That’s right everyone, on Saturday August 23rd Scott Kelby is organizing a worldwide photo walk as part of the launch of his new Lightroom 2 Book for Digital Photographers. In cities across the globe photographers will come together on the same day to capture images of the world around them.
As part of this event, Scott has asked me to host the Binghamton area photo walk! What is a photo walk, you might ask? It is a social event where a group of photographers come together along a predetermined route to photograph interesting subjects along the way. It differs from street photography in that the focus isn’t necessarily people but could be anything that is of interest to the photographer. The event lasts for 2 hours and ends with a time of socializing and sharing at a local restaurant. (Click here for more info.)
This isn’t a workshop or formal training opportunity, but more of a chance for photographers to get together and go out shooting. Of course, a main component to a photo walk is to network with other photographers, ask questions and share tips, and get outside and just shoot.
Not only will you have the chance to go out shooting with other photographers and take part in a very unique worldwide experience, there are prizes too! As part of your city’s photo walk, you will have access to a Flickr Group to share your photos from the day and your host will judge the images and award the taker of the best photo with a copy of Scott Kelby’s brand new Lightroom 2 Book for Digital Photographers!
