- Photo Walks
- 100 Steps
There are a couple of ways to view a photo walk. You can go out on your own and walk around your local city, or where ever you happen to be at the time, and look for ideal scenes to shoot; Or you can go on a paid tour. There are a number of attractions and destinations around the world that offer guided tours for photographers and they will point out spots of interest to photograph. Either way, it is some good exercise and you will come home with great photos.
I will often go to one of my local parks and just walk around for hours looking for interesting shooting places. I will also walk through the city and shoot as much as possible as an opportunity to work on composition. While I have not been on a guided walk, I will likely do so at some point.
100 Steps is very much like the the photo walk except you are forcing your self to shoot on intervals. Start at point (A) and take photos. Find every shot you can possibly take and then take 100 steps in any direction and shoot some more. Wash, Rinse and Repeat. The 100 Steps idea is great for macro photography as you can spend an entire day shooting and come home with hundreds of photos.
One of the many benefits to these photo walks is that it trains you to look for the shots you want to take so that you are constantly looking. You will be developing your eye and building a good base for your portfolio.
Something that I would like to point out is that you can mix and match your daily shooting list depending on your available time to shoot, weather conditions or any other factors. The main idea to these daily shoot projects is take photos every day.
