Worldwide Photowalk

This is the second Worldwide Photowalk that I have had the pleasure of leading. I've been convinced that we need a theme for the walk, so it's going to be `Use your Camera on Manual', because it is a frequently-discussed subject at our Sunshine Coast Multimedia Group sessions, but is so easy to get right if you follow a few simple steps. So if you have always wanted to get over the `Manual Hurdle', I'll try to have you doing that as we go round our walk. You could also win a decent prize from Kelby One, because one of our photowalkers will win a year's access to Kelby's online Digital Photography courses, worth US$249. Our Worldwide Photowalk winning photo will be selected by professional photographer Laurie Coates, and announced first at the Sunshine Coast Multimedia group's session on October 22nd – it could be you, but only if you take part and enter a photo online. We start our Worldwide Photowalk early in the day for a few reasons, one of which is so you can catch the town as it is coming to life.

A lot happens in Nambour on Saturday mornings, so my expectation is that some really interesting shots will come from this walk. Please join us at the Community Centre from 7.45am, so you can get to meet your fellow walkers, and exchange ideas about what you plan to photograph. There is limited parking at the Community Centre, so I advise parking under the Big-W Shopping Centre nearby. Depending on the weather conditions on the day, a wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses, sun-screen and some water are advisable, along with comfortable footwear bearing in mind we will be covering up to 3kms around the town, if you walk the entire route. You don't have to walk the entire route though; Photography is the important thing, and if you wish to join us for only part of the route, that's fine. You still need to register though. Please keep up to date with any developments or changes of plan via your walker page on this site, or via our Sunshine Coast Multimedia Group Facebook page.

Most of all, share your photographic experiences along the way with your fellow shutter-bugs, and have fun. After the photowalk, we can meet up for a coffee, but you are also welcome to join our SCM group session on Wednesday 15th October for a de-brief and to get any help you might need to upload your photograph(s). I look forward to sharing Nambour's Kelby One Worldwide Photowalk with you on Saturday 11th October. Registration (free) to take part in the walk via this website:
