Go on a Theme Photo Walk: - Look for Similarities
The first is to simply pick a theme for your photo walk. This is a great idea if lack focus or ideas.. You might shoot only textures, patterns, reflections, objects and shadows or people with their dogs. Have fun, enjoy, and ask yourself "what can I photograph that brings a smile to my face?" Think of your photo walk as treasure hunt.
