Preparing for World Wide Photo Walk DC 2016 #WWPWDC2015

October 1, 2016

3 pm - 6 pm

Our meeting location, 1800 Columbia Road, NW

We will meet in this open area in front of Sun Trust Bank.

I'm looking forward to meeting all of you on this year's World Wide Photo Walk.

The Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk, dubbed the world’s largest global and social photography event, has grown immensely in size and popularity since the inaugural walk in 2007. Last year, more than 30,000 photographers of all walks of life and skill level converged to explore their corners of the world through photography and social community.

The concept of a Photo Walk is simple. Photo Walks are created by Walk Leaders in cities all over the world. Walkers spend a few hours socializing, capturing images and sharing with like-­‐minded people. At the end of the photo walk, we will convene at local restaurants or taverns to share their images and experiences over food.

About our DC Photo Walk

During out walk, we will photograph three of DC's historic neighborhoods:

Adams Morgan | U Street Corridor | Dupont Circle

This route is great for street photography and street portraits. We will have wonderful architecture to capture. You will also find opportunities for history and culture along our walk.

Getting there

Our meeting point

We will meet at 1800 Columbia Road, NW. You will find us directly in front of the Sun Trust bank and across the street from Starbucks.

Take the Metro

The best way to get to our photo walk is by taking the Metro to the Woodley Park stop on the Red Line. From there you will have a short walk to our meeting point.

This is your rout from the Metro to our meeting point.

We end at Dupont Circle, so if you park near Woodley Park, you can ride one Metro stop back to your vehicle.

If you think you will only walk to U Street, it might be better to arrive using the Columbia Heights stop on the Yellow Line. Then you will have one stop back from the U Street station.

Parking

Street parking can be difficult in the city, especially on weekends. Your best bet is taking public transportation.

If you must drive, using the ParkMobile makes it easy to pay and manage your time and costs. Set up the app before you leave.

There are also several parking lots in the area. This is obviously a more expensive option, but it can save you the headache of feeding a meter.

About.com has a comprehensive page listing all the parking lot options in the area.

What to bring

The camera and lens you have. They are the best ones.

Travel light. We will cover a lot of ground.

A medium zoom might be the most useful lens to bring. For a creative choice, pick a fixed focal length.

Business cards or some way to keep in touch with the friends we make.

Comfortable shoes.

Our end point

We will end at Dupont Circle.

Meet at the fountain

After the walk, we will find somewhere to eat.

During the walk, tweet or Instagram using hashtag #wwpwdc2016
