Street Photography Course

Take to the streets of London on our Street Photography Course.

What is street photography? Here’s a definition by Shaun Hines, who leads this workshop: Street Photography can be poignant, humorous, it can make social comment, produce images surreal in nature and raise questions. It provides the opportunity for us to record and inspect aspects of our culture. It doesn’t have to be taken in an urban environment or even include people, it is the trace of our activities in general that is important.

On the 36exp Street Photography Course you will spend the day shooting street photography with Shaun. You will work towards developing your own street photography style and you will learn techniques which will enable you to capture images of people and places which say something to the viewer.

In a small group you’ll learn and practice:

– Effective composition and exposure techniques for street photography

– How to analyse what goes into your shot to achieve photos with impact and interest

– How to build narrative and tell a story

– Practical considerations including what camera and lens equipment you should use, what you should wear, and how you should behave

– Shooting techniques so you are ready to capture fleeting moments

History of street photography, plus information on legalities surrounding the subject

– Discussion on what makes good street photography

– How to develop your personal style of street photography, advice on creating a series of images and working on a personal project

– Techniques for approaching subjects to shoot candid portraits including street performers and market traders

The workshop begins with a presentation and discussion, but the majority of the day is spent out with your camera, learning and creating images.

You are supervised, in a small group, all day by Shaun Hines, who will provide ideas, guidance and technical know how so that you will learn how to take more interesting, rewarding and street photos.

The workshop takes place around the Bankside area of London, and attendees will be emailed with the meeting point.
