On Saturday 25th October I hosted the Nottingham Photowalk which was organised by Olympus through the Imagespace website. Before we get started let me take a minute to explain that streetwalks aren't just for Street photographers. Attendees for this event included a variety of photographic genres including Macro, Landscape and Portrait. These events will increase your knowledge of the Olympus system, whilst giving you the opportunity to gain hints and tips from an Olympus Ambassador, most importantly they also give you the opportunity to do what we all love and that is to capture new imagery.
The venue for this walk was the beautiful historic city of Nottingham, which for those of you that have visited will appreciate it is a city full of charm and character. During the walk I explained and used a variety of in camera features including Highlight and Shadow control, Art filters, Aspect ratio, Keystone and Multiple exposure. Using the built-in features the group quickly appreciated the advantages of creating in camera and ultimately reducing or removing the need for post processing. For this reason all the images captured during the walk that I share in this post are out of camera jpeg's.

During the walk we stopped at a traditional shoemaker, greeted by the owner Peter he was more than happy for us to browse the shop and snap away.

So if your not sure if photowalks are for you, then think again. They are a great fun way to use the latest Olympus kit whilst gaining inspiration. Be sure to visit the Olympus Image Space website where you will find further events which are run by the Olympus Ambassador team.
Here are a few more images I captured during my short stay in Nottingham.
I Hope to see you at the next event.
