Street Photography Pt. 1
Street photography is a blend of photographic and people skills and is the ultimate people watching. It’s a genre packed with opportunities for fantastic images but it’s vital to know how to be comfortable photographing strangers.
And on top of that you have to know which camera settings and lenses to use to make your images powerful.
It can be very uncomfortable photographing complete strangers at first so here's a way to ease yourself in by shooting Street Photography Still Lifes - which not only make great images in themselves, they’re an opportunity to grab shots of people without them knowing it. Wide lenses are perfect for this because you don't have to point them directly at anyone.
We’ll talk you through finding the depth of field you need, which ISO to use, making sure your images are sharp by avoiding camera shake as well as composition and more.
Cameras Don't Take Pictures was a very enjoyable evening and something different to the usual lectures. You made it thought provoking and included the audience with your questions.
