Workshop Description

Learn the art of street photography! If you want to capture the essence of a city in one photograph, then this workshop is for you. Our hands-on approach allows you to get stuck in straight away, learning as you shoot. You’ll develop all the skills you need to create stunning street photography. We will give you the techniques and the vision to look beyond everyday life and create authentic and original images. 

You will learn:

  • Location – how to choose a suitable location and find interesting subjects.

  • Unique expertise – what to look for, anticipating the shot, foreseeing, decisive moment.

  • Lenses – the types of lenses and focal lengths you’ll need for creative street photography.

  • Composition – how to use existing natural elements to enhance your images.

  • Technical skills – everything you need to know including shutter speed, aperture, ISO and DOF.

  • Photographing safely in public spaces – understand the legal, moral and safety aspects involved for working in a public place.
