Apart from the chance you get to win the international grand prize, this is what the winner gets in the photo walk in Sri Lanka.

Also as the WWPW organizer in Sri Lanka, I too will receive the same book free of charge from the WWPW cheif organizer in USA (and that's all I earn from it apart from some new friends) and hope to present it to the winner of a future Photo Lanka competition (details will be notified later).

LIGHT IT - SHOOT IT - RETOUCH IT - by Scott Kelby
light-it-shoot-it-retouch-it-learn-step-by-step-how-to-go-from-empty-studio-to-finished-image

Overview
So many books tackle just one aspect of a successful shoot. In Light It, Shoot It, Retouch It,bestselling author Scott Kelby focuses on all three necessary components of a great shot-the lighting and its setup, the shot itself, and the post-processing.

The book is chock-full of diagrams that show readers exactly what to do in order to get specific types of shots-right on down to how many feet to set the strobe from the subject, and the subject from the camera. In the 16 shots covered in the book, Scott addresses all of today's most popular types of lighting setups, from edgy, dramatic, high-contrast light to soft, beautiful, wrapping light. Then he takes those shots into Photoshop and shows how to process, retouch, and finish each image, from global adjustments such as exposure and contrast to local adjustments, like retouching eyes and skin.

Organized by two-page spreads, the first spread shows the final image and a contact sheet presentation of other images from the shoot; the second shows an information-packed image of the entire set-up from high above the set; the next spread shows set-up shots from all other angles (from the left of set, right of set, behind the set, and behind the camera); and the rest of the spreads take the image into post-processing in Photoshop to show how to get the final image.

Author Information
Scott Kelby - Scott Kelby is President of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP) and Editor-in-Chief of both Photoshop User and Layers magazines. Scott serves as training director for the Adobe Photoshop Seminar Tour and is the technical chair of the largest Photoshop gathering in the industry, Photoshop World. He has written numerous best-selling creative technology books.

Good question Anjana; and we certainly expected this.

According to the rules and regulations of the WWPW headquarters, a leader could lead ONLY 50 walkers. If we have more, Upul will be leading them (officially we can not say "not to photo walk with us" to anyone who wants join us).

Simply click the link given below and press the “Contact Leader” button (and don’t worry even if it says it is the “Waiting List”), we’ will do the needful from this end.

Guys,

As Upul mentioned above, official registration will be closed with 65 participants. After that, if anyone still wishes to join us in the walk, he/she can join the walk as an unregistered participant.

FYI, regarding the photo walk, we have informed / obtained the authorization from the relevant authorities including the police stations of Cinnamon Gardens and Slave Island.

I will post the program / time schedule by tomorrow :)

Guys, I have received a mail from WWPW headquarters.

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL PHOTO-WALKERS

- PARKING VEHICLES

There is ample parking space at our starting point (Independence Square) and also at the Vihara Maha Devi (VMD) Park main entrance, which is the ending point.

Although the distance between two points is less than 700 meters, I strongly advise you to use the VMD Park entrance to park your vehicles so that once everything is over you have quick access to the vehicles.

- SUNSCREEN & WATER

(Apart from your cameras, charged batteries and memory cards) make sure to bring some SUNSCREEN to protect from sunburn and enough WATER to keep yourself hydrated.

Hi guys,

Behalf of the organizing team I wish to say THANK YOU very much for all those who participated in the walk and extremely happy to meet a load of new friends who share the same passion - it's been a wonderful experience :)

While thanking Scott Kelby of NAPP / National Association of Photoshop Professionals for organizing the world biggest photo event, I would also like to say THANK YOU to Photo Technica, the sole agent for Nikon in Sri Lanka for making this event successful in many ways. My warm gratitude goes to Mr. Harsha Malvenna, Managing Director, Photo Technica and Ajantha, the Marketing Manager for coming forward readily to sponsor the eleventh hour.

Hope to see you all next year too and invite you all to participation in the photo walk photo competitions stated below:

1. Nikon / Photo Technica competition – open for all the photo walk participants
2. WWPW photo competition - local (only for the first 50 registrants)
3. WWPW photo competition – International grand prize (only for the first 50 registrants)

I will give the complete details (closing date, prizes etc.) soon in this thread.

Since the photo walk is over, now you will be able to log on to the Worldwide Photo Walk website, go to your walk page, and submit your best photo from the event to the contest. Remember, there are lots of great prizes available to the winners!

You can also share your photos taken during the walk on the Official Worldwide Photo Walk Flickr Group:
tr.subscribermail.com/cc.cfm?sendto=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Efl...
. Photos from events all around the world will be shared here so the entire community can see the global event they were part of. These photos are not part of the competition, but a great way for everyone to share their experience with the rest of the world.

Walkers will have until 12:00 noon EDT October 7th to submit their best photo to the contest. After that, we will choose the winning photo for the local competition.

Thanks again for helping us with this history-making event.

Thank you guys for your time and commitment in making this a success. It would not be a success, if not for your participation.

Thanks Losh for portraits. ;-)

out of 79 listed, we had above 50 participants.. That is awesome..
and for those who give their names and did not participate, (Specially the first 50) you put us in a great difficulty, guys... You should not have done that... :-(

A big thank you to Dhammika and all the organisers. This was the first event I ever participated, hopefully I'll be there for more :)
Thank you, Dhammika and Upul. Never been able to shoot in some of these places without being stopped by police. And nice to see so many photographers all at once :).
