  • Start the date with a brief chat about photography and perhaps a little tutorial. You may not be professional photographers, but you could stir up your creativity and vision on this day out. Set some photo challenges such as taking pictures of local iconic landmarks, capturing smiling locals, and the amazing Russian architecture.
  • Enjoy a leisurely stroll through Ulan-Ude’s pedestrian streets and plazas and look for the most beautiful or peculiar places to take pictures. You will find the Buddhist temples fascinating and the common Soviet-style houses intriguing. Don't limit yourselves to the ground, look up, look around, every view could become your next favorite picture.
  • After the photography hunt, go home and prepare a slideshow, review the photos, share impressions and insights. This fun collaboration and the shared experience help you understand each other better and make great memories together.

Preparation steps:

  • Make sure both of you have fully charged cameras. If you don't own a professional camera, there's no need to worry, a decent camera phone will do just fine. Plan your route in advance, consider places that are rich in nice views: such as the Ethnographic Museum of the People of Transbaikalia Culture Gau, Buddhist Temple Rinpoche Bagsha, and the Pedestrian Street Arbat.
  • Prepare comfortable walking shoes and light snacks and make sure to dress appropriately for the weather. There's no need to rush, so plan for a full day out.
  • Lastly, take a few moments to look up some basics of photography. Understanding concepts like framing, lighting, and perspective can add an extra layer of fun and challenge to your photography hunt.

Some tips:

  • Even if you think a spot doesn’t look particularly thrilling, try looking at it from different perspectives. Sometimes the most unassuming location can bring out the most amazing photos. Use this date as an opportunity to see the usual places from an unusual angle.
  • Don't forget to bring extra power banks or spare batteries. You'll be taking a lot of photos and using your phones to navigate, so having backup power sources can prevent any unnecessary difficulties.
  • Remember, this is a date, not a competition. Be patient with each other, especially if one of you has more photography experience. The goal is to have fun and make lasting memories together.
