What is the mood and culture of the city you live in? Are you able to capture it in your street photography? Do your photos transmit clearly the character and atmosphere of the place you live in?
Street photographers are one of the best resources for telling the story of a city but to do so, they need to use their intuition along with understanding of photography, public social behavior, and street life in general.
The good news is, no matter where you are in your photographic journey right now, you can improve your understanding in all of these areas – and thereby improve your photos – which is why we’re excited to announce an upcoming workshop called Documentary Street Photography with Harvey Stein. Seasoned photographer, Harvey Stein, will help you learn how to document your environment and its people by explaining several topics including:
- What it means to photograph strangers
- Be inspired to find new ways to personalize your approach
- Strategies to approach people on the street
- How to pose and interact with the people you meet
- Learn to bring greater meaning to your work.
This is a six-session remote learning course, which will begin on May 25th at 1pm EDT. It will consist of short lectures, demonstrations, critiques, image presentations, and student assignments. To learn more and to reserve your spot, visit our Documentary Street Photography Sign-up Page.
