This is a two and a half hour street photography workshop and has limited availability. We spend the entire time on the street shooting, discussing and reviewing. No matter what your level of experience is, amateur to professional, there's something for everyone. All digital cameras are good for the workshop. We'll stop for coffee and to discuss at some point as well.
Prior to going into the street we will meet for a presentation in a coffee shop centrally located during which we will discuss the different ways to approach street photography. We will go over the ethical aspects of this popular genre of photography, the do's & don'ts and how to get over the fear of photographing strangers in the streets. From candid shots to street portraits, we will look at more advanced techniques to tell a story in a frame.
The workshop runs rain or shine with the exception of extreme weather. Make certain to have fully charged batteries, empty memory cards, wear comfortable shoes and prepare for the weather.
