Street Photography Meetup

Street Photography Meetup

Saturday 17 December
Midtown Atlanta - 10am - 2 Hours
People, cafes, vendors, street merchants, buskers, historic buildings, art installations and much more. The power of observation underpins the art of great street photography. Learning to "see" interesting detail is a practised skill and we introduce you to easy methods that will open your photographer's eye and expose you to a world that is alive with detail. The most rewarding part of the class is learning how to approach interesting people and have them willingly pose for you. We will also go over settings, focusing techniques and lens choices common to street photography to help us capture those random chance encounters.

    As always, I had such a great learning experience. I really enjoyed this topic and the instruction from Austin. He stimulated really great ideas while I thought of shots. In addition, talking to him after class and also practicing other types of photography (I.e., long exposure) was great, too.
