The photo workshop is less about technical aspects of photography but more about capturing emotions of the place through visual stories.

Fully Charged Batteries:
Ensure your camera batteries are fully charged, and if possible, bring an extra battery. It's a no brainer and yet many people forget it.
Sufficient Memory Cards:
Make sure you have enough storage space on your memory cards. It's better to carry a few smaller capacity cards than one large one to avoid losing all your shots if a card malfunctions.
A comfortable and functional camera bag is essential for carrying your gear. Choose one that provides easy access to your camera and protects it from dust and minor impacts.
Wear comfortable clothes and shoes suitable for walking.
Lens Cleaning Kit:
Dust and smudges can affect your photos. Carry a lens cleaning kit to keep your camera lens and viewfinder clear. A simple micro-fiber cloth can do wonders.
Water Bottle and Snacks:
Staying hydrated is crucial, especially if you're walking for an extended period. Bring a reusable water bottle and some light snacks to keep your energy up.
Notepad and Pen:
If you like taking notes about specific shots, locations, or ideas, a small notepad and pen can be handy.
Portable Phone Charger:
Ensure your smartphone is charged or bring a portable charger. You might need it for navigation, communication, or even for some quick snapshots.
Street photography can be unpredictable, and not every shot may turn out as expected. Approach the photo walk with a positive attitude, be open to spontaneity, and enjoy the experience.
When photographing people on the street, it's essential to be respectful. Always seek permission when appropriate and be mindful of cultural sensitivities.
Umbrella or Rain Gear (if applicable):
Check the weather forecast and be prepared for unexpected rain. An umbrella or rain cover for your camera can be a lifesaver.
