You might remember a guest post we had a few months ago called The Mission District Project by Bernardo Hupsel. His images were raw and intense and showed a little side of San Francisco you may not have heard about before. If you want to hit the streets in this unique area of the city, photographic guide included, then you are in luck! This weekend, photographer David Coleman is leading a one-day workshop of the area for a very reasonable price. Here’s a little more info on the event.
Join Master Photographer, David Coleman, on a hands-on street photography workshop to colorful San Francisco’s Mission District. One of San Francisco’s largest ethnic communities. David will provide hands-on instruction and coaching in the field. He will teach you how to capture a public space and compose a thematic body of work using the colorful murals as backdrops. You will learn street photography techniques and visual storytelling skills. David will also provide a virtual classroom instruction focused on editing your images in Adobe Lightroom and facilitate a peer review session of participant images.
In addition to his many workshops, David also puts on what look like some pretty amazing experiences. For example, you can join him for a five day experience in San Miguel de Allende for the “Dia de los Locos.” A local tradition that may simply sound like an excuse for a whole town to “act a fool,” but in reality is an important religious tradition, handed down for decades. David was born and raised in Mexico, so he is an ideal guide for navigating the city and festival with a few street photographers in tow.
Finally, there’s David’s free seminars. In just an hour or so, David breaks down fundamental photography subjects, such as composition and color – an excellent resource if you are just starting out in photography.
So if you are in the Bay Area or not too far away or willing to travel, try to attend one of David’s workshops. You’ll get to know the city a little better, take some amazing street shots and learn from a very talented photographer – what’s not to love?
