Street Photography

Street Photography

Saturday 04 February
Downtown Winston-Salem - 2pm - 2 Hours
People, cafes, vendors, street merchants, buskers, historic buildings, art installations and much more. The power of observation underpins the art of great street photography. Learning to "see" interesting detail is a practised skill and we introduce you to easy methods that will open your photographer's eye and expose you to a world that is alive with detail. The most rewarding part of the class is learning how to approach interesting people and have them willingly pose for you. We will also go over settings, focusing techniques and lens choices common to street photography to help us capture those random chance encounters.

  • Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

    We did not have ideal weather conditions to do street photography, but Josh did a great job of trying to help each of us on an individual basis to learn more about our cameras and when the rainy drizzle let up enough for us to try to walk around, he was so helpful in helping us with settings to try to learn some different ways to capture pictures in less than perfect conditions. I will definitely do another session in the near future.

    The event was nice, the weather was extremely cold. The instructor did a good job of conveying the information to the class.
