I am looking for interested parties who want to participate in a PhotoWalk in the Washington DC area. Not the monuments and buildings that have been shot by oh so many tourists (including me) but some of the less frequented, but just as interesting locations around the city. I haven’t nailed down a date or time or route yet but I am looking at March 8th. I am already counting in Mike & Mike but I would love to hear from others in the area that are interested. As I said, the date and time is not set so if you have alternate suggestions, please let me know. I was just over at Photowalking.org looking at the wrap-up from the Bethesda photowalk this past weekend and they had 26 photographers show up, including Scott Sherman from the Digital Photography Show Podcast.
In conjunction with the walk, I have set up a DC Photowalk Flickr Group to upload images and discuss the walk (click here to go to the group). Not sure what a photowalk is? It’s really pretty simple, grab your camera and any other photogear you might find essential, your comfortable walking shoes, and a spirit of adventure. Add some other enthusiastic photographers, an interesting location, and start clicking. That’s about all there is to it. It’s really just a way to get out, take some photos of things you find interesting along the way and then share them with others that share your passion. No critiques, just mutual inspiration and maybe at the end, a little coffee and pie. Mmmmmm, pie! So if you are interested, drop me a comment here on the blog or head on over to the Flickr Group. The more, the merrier.
* Update – I have sent email invitations to the Northern Virginia Photographic Society and the Silver Spring Camera Club. If you are aware of, or belong to any local camera club, please let me know so that I can offer them an invitation.
FINALIZED PLANS – All of the details for the photowalk have now been finalized. The information is available on the Flick Group site located at: http://www.flickr.com/groups/dcphotowalk/ You can also obtain all of the details on my Feb. 22 post by clicking here. Scroll to the bottom of the post for the information. Hope to see you there.
