Solstice Photowalk

Jun 23, 2021 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm


 DSC3951It’s time for our first in person gathering in almost a year and a half! Join Wasatch Camera Club as we meet at Essential Photo Supply in Salt Lake City and then go on a photowalk ... together! This event takes place on June 23rd and what better way to celebrate the longer days of the summer solstice!

The owners of Essential Photo Supply will welcome us and give us a chance to see their new store. From there, we will go on a photowalk to Liberty Park, just 4 blocks away. 

Opportunities abound at Liberty Park for photography. People are out and about; picnicking, exercising, and playing games. There will be ample opportunity for street style, action, bird and dog photography. We will watch for solstice light, patterns, shadows, reflections, birds and storytelling moments.

A couple weeks after the photowalk, we will convene on Zoom to share what people have captured.  It’s fascinating how differently we see and what we choose to share. The Zoom meeting will be open to all members of the Wasatch Camera Club, with photowalk participants sharing and others observing.
