From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Photowalking is the act of walking with a camera for the main purpose of taking pictures of things you may find interesting.
While not exclusive to digital photography, in practice digital photography makes Photowalking more realistic as a hobby due to its experimental nature, the number of pictures typically taken in the process, and the possibility of post-processing afterward.
While closely related to Street photography, photowalking is differentiated by the main impetus being to photograph things of interest rather than people specifically. It is also often done as a method to practice and improve one's own photography skills rather than a with specific focus on documentary photography.
Photowalking is also a form of exercise as it can take the photographer over the course of several miles as they wander a particular site or neighborhood.
Photowalking is also often associated with on-line photo sharing.
This seems to be a good concept that is getting a lot of fans all over the globe.
If you have done anything like this before share your opinions on the comments I would love to hear more about this Photowalking stuff.
