D SLR Street Photography From The Ground-Up Workshop…
Street photography can be a challenging, but rewarding genre of photography. It is not for everybody, but some just love the ‘buzz’.
And of course it can be great to spent a few minutes wherever life takes you, if not longer, shooting the ‘real world’.
But it is far easier with a ‘roadmap’ of ideas and techniques.
We seek eye catching images after all, maximising what we desire to jeep in frame. It can be all to easy to get no more than a small subject matter and from the wrong angle when you are feeling under pressure.
This workshops is packed with some great information and plenty of inspiration therefore.
People have appreciated its honest approach to the genre, and exploring the possibilities to capture life on the streets as it unfolds in all its forms, with some wonderful skills to draw upon.
Alongside, we look at capturing those incidental close-up shots, that often present themselves while pounding the streets, that can make a days shooting so interesting.
Presented in an easy-to-follow presentation style, this fun-filled and informative day will open up your street photography to a wealth of ideas and the solutions.
Whilst not the only suitable camera design, D SLR cameras can still take street photography in their stride.
Delegates should be aware that some walking will be involved on this workshop, so footwear and suitable clothing for the anticipated conditions is needed.
