Street photography for all

Does this genre excite your curiosity and are you eager to learn more about its history and practice? Would you like to capture the moment but your inhibitions put obstacles in your way? Then this class is definitely for you!

This 3.5h class was designed for people wishing to learn street photography, by discovering its history, its great figures, and through accompanied practice.

The curriculum will be developed in three parts, each necessary to begin effectively in this photographic art:

  • Firstly through inspiration; by discovering the history of Street Photography, and the great photographers who made it, you will have a glimpse at the diversity of approaches and aesthetics of this genre.
  • Before starting shooting, technical tips and tricks will be given, exclusively designed to optimise your technical management in the context of the street and to take photographs "on the fly".
  • Finally, the time of practice - the heart of this class. Thanks to precise exercises, with very clear objectives, your instructor will teach you methods of discreet approaches and various tips of compositions for your street photographs to succeed.

At the end of the class, you will approach this practice in a more serene way and with the necessary inspiration to flourish on the awesome playground that is the street!


Portrait

Sometimes, the simplest photos are the hardest ones to take. How do you take an impeccable portrait of a loved-one or of a friend on the spot, and only with the help of natural lighting? How do you end up with an expressive and successful portrait without the aid of a studio?

It is essential to take the environment into consideration when composing a portrait. Managing the background's colours and graphics, choosing the point of view, directing the model - these are all points that will be covered during the course.

Light control is an equally important aspect; in particular, analysing a given moment's light and using it wisely are elements that will be explained to help you make a successful portrait.

This workshop will teach you:

  • How to observe the environment so as to guide your aesthetic choices: point of view, directing a model
  • How to "read" light and place your subject accordingly
  • How to correctly define parameters in your camera according to your desired result
  • How to frame and compose an image to highlight the subject
