This past Saturday was the Scott Kelby Photo Walk 2010. I lead the group on a downtown Photo Walk. We had a wonderful turn out and I had a chance to meet some existing friends and some new ones! Photo Walks’s are great…everyone usually has a camera and tripod…so you fit right in!! Skills vary from the beginner to possible a pro! My 6 year old daughter even joined the walk for a bit. I think we even had a 3 year old out there taking shots! Whether you were shooting standard, HDR, IR, Macro, Street photography…it was a perfect nite! Not too hot for Austin…about 93 degrees. We lasted till 9:30 PM. A few of us walked down in hopes to see the Bats at sunset, but they decided not to fly out. Possible weather patterns or babies are being cared for? Not sure, but we did get a few shots from Congress Avenue at the blue hour. I set up a Flickr Group for our Photo Walk for those that might want to see our shots. It may take a few days for it to fill up…so check back often. We met up afterwards and it was great to chat and compare shots. Everyone has a different “Camera Eye”…to see the world through another persons point of view is what photography is all about!
I didn’t take many shots this nite, but did get a chance to shoot a few infrared photos before the sunset….this is the Capitol Building from a different point of view. I’ll gladly teach anyone about IR…just shoot me an email! If you were at your local Photo Walk…how did it go? Have fun! I’ll get another Photo Walk together next year in Austin….this time at UT Campus!
