Field Guide II: The Street (1-day)


"The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box."
— Henri Cartier Bresson

One-day, six-hour class. 

Who should take this class?
This workshop is ideal for students and street shooters who are already experienced with basic mechanics of cameras (controlling exposure, focus, aperture, shutter speed) and want to develop their technique and experiment with natural light.

What you will learn
This six-hour workshop covers the unpredictable nature of the city landscape.  A more advanced course, The Street challenges students to get out and use the environment as a working tool, putting their learning to practice by observing and capturing light, reflection and shadow in the real world.   This Field Guide also focuses on color, composition and context within images.

What to bring?
Bring your camera and we will provide you with a syllabus and field guide notebook.

If you are not familiar with controlling exposure through aperture, shutter speed and ISO, and generally working in manual mode, we strongly recommend signing up for Field Guide I: The Camera.
