Read about a cool Photowalk to get the idea:
CSULB Campus Photowalks
This week we’ll have Photowalks of the CSULB Campus led by some of your classmates. Each Photowalk Leader will define in advance a specific route or area or type of path they want to take. Each student will pick one leader and join their walk. Then bring your “camera” (phone or real camera if you have one) and take a series of pictures along the walk.
Pay attention to all your photographic elements: light, shadow, foreground, background, composition, angle, dynamics, statics, cropping, framing, etc.
Just 1 Blog Post This Week
This week we’re meeting at the SOA Gallery complex on Thursday as usual, but we’re not doing Artist & Classmate conversations this week! Instead we’ll go off on our Photowalks. This week only, it’s just 1 blog post, for the Photowalk Art Experience, and no Conversation posts. We’ll be back to the usual 3 posts next week.
- Include at least 6 pix from your walk in your blog post.
- Talk about the experience of the walk.
- Talk about what you were looking for in your photographs.
- Say a few words about your guide: what was good? What could make the walk even better?
You can follow the Photowalk Guide of your choice. Here are the 8 Guides and the CSULB Photowalk Tours they’ll be leading:
My theme will be “What CSULB is Truly Known For”. Our university has many amazing attributes but when referring to the campus there are a few particular locations and attractions that really make the school unique. I plan to go to my favorite CSULB sign made out of plants, the notorious fountains, the pyramid, the Japanese Gardens and more if we have time. Additionally, open for questions and suggestions always.

My theme will be “The natural side of CSULB”. I am going to bring students down close to the engineering buildings where there are lots of trees around. For me It is the best place for photography. 😀
My plan is to take the group through the middle of campus and get some shots of daily life. Next we’ll head below the science building where you can see over a nice part of campus. Last we will head towards the Pyramid to take pictures of one of the marvels of CSULB.
I have in mind walking around campus past the most well known parts of our campus and also new seating areas that have been added to school (example: between LA4 and LA3 there’s a newer grassy area with benches and tables), the Pyramid, the water fountains.
I will take my group to go see the Walter Pyramid, one of the few pyramids in the United States. I will also take us to go see the Japanese garden at school to see the influence of Asian culture even here in CSULB.
My walk will take students to the different water displays we have on campus. From the fountain to the Japanese garden. To take photos of the water and the art that has gone into presenting it.
My theme will be trees of CSULB. We have so many different forms of greenery on campus; like the other day I saw a plumeria tree on campus and it caught me off guard because it was the only one I’ve ever seen on campus. We will walk the upper campus admiring the trees of CSULB we often take for granted and lack admiration of.
My plan is to take my group through the fun recreation sights of CSULB. First we will go to the outdoor shopping area near the bookstore, then go to the bottom floor of the USU (billiards, bowling, swimming pool), then we will end at the H2O fountain at Brotman Hall.
