Shooting at close range - Street Photography Workshops

20th July 2017

Soho, London 2017

A part of my street photo workshops involves teaching covert techniques & confidence tips to shoot people at close range. Seeing as I have to lead by example, I end up taking 100s of close up pics so they can see me in action and to invite them out of their comfort zone, which for some, starts on the other side of the road. But towards the end of the workshop, they are so in the 'zone' they forget to be afraid and shoot at my distance or a much closer range then they did at the start.

This method allows you to take a better composed photo by putting your creativity and composition first, instead of any fear or doubt about taking the photo and missing the moment.

Not all street photography styles involves shooting at close range, but when you do, it can often make for a more compelling photo, especially street portraits or interactions between people expressing emotions, moods or other characteristics that would be hard to connect with if shoot from too far away.
