Taking Notes

with Antonio Olmos

Street Photography is the purest form of photography. When you look at the great photographs throughout the history of photography, the ones capturing life in the street always stand out. The world’s greatest photographer was Henri Cartier­Bresson and he prowled the streets of the world for 50 years.

In this course we will deal with all aspects of street photography. We will deal with all the difficulties people have in immersing themselves in the chaos of urban life. We will tackle with getting close to your subject , the history and philosophy of street photography, practical advice, discussing concerns about taking photos in public, ethical questions, and gaining confidence doing street photography.

We will deal with the technical aspects of street photography. What lenses and cameras, exposures, understanding light, composition, learning to be quick and discreet without being sneaky or suspicious.

We will also explore the issues of shooting in RAW, editing, post processing and producing a final image.

The skills learned in street photography will be a good grounding in pursuing all forms of photography.
