In this short video I explain about Photowalks, and how I use them to practice and improve.
I tend to just think of a local place i haven't visited yet with my camera, then pack my gear and set off. As I'm walking around I'm looking for any chance of a good shot - ways of practicing my delivery of Subject, Composition and Light.
I'll take dozens and dozens of pictures on a Photowalk - yet only publish 3 to 10 on the web. My hit rate is normally about 1 good shot for every 10 I take - but that isn't time wasted. It's practice.
Funnily enough, I recently got a Film SLR, and because of all the practice I've put in, and the fact that I was ultra careful with each frame, I probably got about 15 keepers out of 24 - I've just got to do the same with my digital now!
