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.
My photography has gotten better after taking The 7 Blocks of Photography. While all 7 blocks contributed in each of their respective ways, the main factor is Block 1, "You and Your Brilliant Brain" and I now look at things differently. This course has given me the tools to go out and experiment, which will lead to more learning, creativity and more outstanding photography.
