Saturday I participated in the Salt Lake City downtown photowalk as part of the second annual Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk. It was amazing to see the number of registered walks and people around the world, but something almost expected with the awesome photographer community we have here in Utah. Two photowalks were scheduled due to filling up so fast here, though I was only able to make the first of the two. There were plenty of (encouraged) walk ups, so the crowd was big. With this kind of outdoor wandering event, the more the merrier.
I’ve mentioned previously how I enjoy photowalks for a variety of reasons, but in short it’s about interacting with the great people – new and old to the concept – and sharing in knowledge and fun. It was interesting to watch the group naturally split up into subgroups following different paths and ideas. Some stayed with the lead group continually walking, while others stopped, set up some speed lights and did an impromptu modeling session. You create your own experience on a photowalk.
I mainly took video to put together into a wrap up piece (hopefully over the next couple of days), but I managed to snap a few photos as well. Nice to be able to do both on the 5Dii.
