4. Anticipate the shot
Going on a photo walk is an excellent opportunity to train your eye how to anticipate the shot. As you walk around, observe everything that is happening around you. Choose a place where there's a lot of action going on, and wait. Believe it or not, it is relatively easy to predict people's movements.
For example, you know that as soon as the WALK signal lights up, pedestrians cross the street. That will give you the opportunity to take photos. If you miss the shot, wait for the WALK sign to light up again and you can expect a similar scenario to occur.
5. Shoot from different angles
Taking photos at eye level can become boring after a while. Change up your composition and experiment with odd angles as well. Shooting from a different point of view not only adds variety to your pictures, but it also changes the mood of your images. When you go on a photo walk, try framing your shots differently and see what kind of photos you get.
Shoot wide shots of buildings to indicate their size as well incorporate the surrounding environment to affect mood. Shoot close-ups to include details that wide shots are unable to capture.
6. Capture anything that catches your eye
Attending a photo walk exposes you to breathtaking locations through a photographer's point of view. You will be surprised how much a place changes when you look at it from behind the viewfinder. From a photographer's frame of reference, immerse yourself in the environment and keep an eye out for anything that looks interesting.
Look around you and search for different patterns, colorful backgrounds, and symmetry. It wouldn't take long for you to find these things because your brain is naturally drawn to them. People love looking at orderly structures, so don't hesitate to take beautiful visual compositions.
