Photographers to Spend Day Snapping Photos of South Side Community
A Photo Walk is a social photography event where photographers get together to explore a neighborhood, shoot photos and practice their skills. The Stand’s South Side Photo Walk invites photographers — at any and all levels — to participate and capture the scenes from the South Side to share with the community July 23.
The Stand’s Second annual Photo Walk will begin at 10 a.m. Saturday, July 23, at the South Side Innovation Center, 2610 South Salina St. (across from Dunk & Bright). Participants can take their time on the walk or stay with the group but should return to the center by at least 2 p.m. to begin uploading photos. Water will be provided but if attendees want lunch they will need to purchase on their own.
The event will open with a short lesson by professional photographers, who will give pointers and provide guidance throughout the walk.
Next, the walk will take photographers down South Salina Street, through neighborhoods to Kirk Park and back (click here to see the route). Following the walk, photographers will share their photos with the group, and the day’s best shots will be published in the September print issue of The Stand.
Last year’s walk brought nearly 30 photographers to the South Side, some from as far away as Utica to life-long South Side residents. Participants ranged in skill and a handful borrowed cameras to participate. All returned to the center following the walk to share their photos and several of the favorite shots from the day were published in the print issue and even more photos from the 2010 event can be viewed on The Stand’s Flickr photo gallery. Also you can view the 2010 Photo Walk collection.
