Course Description

This one day course is suitable for all levels of photographer from complete beginner to advanced and aims to introduce the practice of Street Photography. It is concerned with improving the personal work that all participants are making and increasing the chances of 'getting THAT shot' and capturing the moment.

In the classroom, the group will talk about optimum camera set ups, how to interact with subjects and legal rights. Participants will look at the work of the masters of street photography and discuss how they got their shots and what lead them to such brilliant subjects. Also covered is looking at how street photographers have reflected their times and reinvigorated its limits so that each participant can too.

More than any other approach, street photography allows the opportunity to develop 'the eye' and the ability to 'hitthe button at the right time', so there will be a substantial practical session out and about in Hamilton, followed by a critique of work produced and suggestions for how to keep progressing and improving and ways to iron out problems experienced.

The focus of this course is not on technical ability but on developing the creative side of your photograph

Participants will be provided with a course handout and are also invited to bring along an image for discussion.
