Laguna Beach Photowalk

On Saturday I drove down to Laguna Beach to participate in the second annual Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk. Scott Kelby is a prolific writer of books about Photoshop and Digital Photography. He started the Photowalks last year as a way to get photographers together to take pictures and share ideas. I'd never done a walk like this before, so I didn't know quite what to expect. Well, I had an absolute blast. It was so cool to walk around with fellow photographers and see what they were seeing and talk about the how's and why's of taking pictures. Basically geeking out. Good times. After the success of the last two years (5,000 people the first year 30,000 this year), I'm sure that it will only grow. I highly recommend checking it out. It's free, and the chance to interact with and shoot alongside other photographers is time well spent.

Here's a few shots from the day.

Well done sir! Which are you submitting? I'll be going through mine, hopefully tonight...but mine aren't from beach :)

ooooooh! Beautiful shots, Marshall. They're all fantastic, but I think I love the first palm best. I totally wish I could have joined you all (especially since it was in my neck of the woods!), but since Big Dude is facing down a huge work deadline, there was no way I was free to go on a photowalk unless I was dragging, errr bringing, along three unenthusiastic-about-walking-and-shooting boys. And, let's face it, how much "fun" would that be?!?

Great shots! I loved my walk in DC. It certainly was a lot of fun. I'll definitely do it again next year! And yes, we really were all geeking out.

These are awesome shots. I had a blast at our photo walk as well, I can't wait for next year as well.

Of course I'm partial to the sunglare, right? :)
