About This Class

In collaboration with VSCO, join trashhand, one of Skillshare's most popular photography teachers, as he shares insight on some of his favorite street photography techniques. While weaving through the streets of his native city Chicago trashhand covers four main topics as they relate to street photography: capturing authentic candids, utilizing blur to convey motion, finding compelling angles for "look-up" shots, and finally trying these techniques at night.    

trashhand has been able to translate his love for photography into a promising career, and practicing shots like these on a daily basis has played a pivotal role. Whether you are looking to improve your personal photography or better position yourself for commissioned gigs with brands, this class will set you on the right path to fulfilling your photography goals.
