Awesome stuff that Andre has to say about street photography. He gives a lot of his own perspective photography to help you understand your own regarding this shooting style. Great stuff!
Excellent class! Thank you so much, Andre! :) I'm a cartoonist and illustrator by profession, and this class really taught me how to take quick shots (especially in B&W) of people, faces, gestures and landscape compositions for my drawing references. Of course, I use just my mobile camera to do all this, but after watching this class, I'm really inspired to go out into the world and take quick natural spontaneous pics that capture the magic of the moment :) Thanks, again, Andre!
This class is inspiring and well put together. I highly recommend!
