Photowalking through a Festival

It is time for Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photo Walk, again. This year, our local walk will be in¬†Ashland’s North Mountain Park during the Bear Creek Salmon Festival.¬†These photo walks are always a good chance to step outside of our normal or comfortable shooting environment. That is my first thought as I look through my own photos below; I was experimenting.

My hope is that this year’s photo walk will really set up a good opportunity for us to stretch ourselves in an area where so many of us struggle: people photos. This is a festival: lots of people will be out and about, cameras will be plentiful, and everybody’s guard will be down. We should have ample opportunity to catch photos of people without the awkwardness of us wondering if they mind us taking a photo. I am looking forward to the opportunities.

I tried my best to shoot a portrait shot of this duck. It took quite a few tried to catch something I really liked, a photo that really seemed to capture something...almost an emotion.
