Photo-walking is one of the most interesting way to indulge ourself in photography. In photo-walking people roam with their cameras and they capture the subjects which attract them. Photo-walking may be done alone or in a group, however I prefer group as in a group there are many advantages like it becomes more enjoyable, we learn from our mates and it is better safety-wise as well. Event like photo-walks give professional photographers a good platform to interact with people. Prior to a photo-walk, we should plan it precisely and keep some things in mind to enjoy it to the fullest.

1. Keep yourself comfortable:
No doubt, it is the foremost thing. You are going some miles on your feet; so it’s pretty mandatory to choose comfortable footwear and clothes. As nobody want to get bruised or swelled feet after a long walk.
2. Keep your gear ready:
No body know what we encounter in the next second while a photo-walk, that event not give you enough time to adjust all your camera settings to click it. So the best approach to be ready all the time.
3. Aware of the surroundings:
Personally I feel it as the most important aspect. Your lack of attention might be fatal for you as well as for others. If you just find a wonderful subject to click then don’t forget the fact that you are on a road or pedestrian walk. Don’t cross this safe zone unconsciously.
4. Keep backup :
As you will roam along with the camera on all the time, it is obvious that your battery will drain out soon. So you must have some battery backup with you which will help you out in clicking for a longer time.
