1-2-1 Street Photography Workshop

05th October 2014
Street Photography workshop



I spent the afternoon with a new student teaching them some street photography. For my tuition workshops I prefer 1-2-1 photo walks as I can really personalise the workshop to their exact wants and needs in learning. Helen was a great student - asking lots of questions and getting stuck in. We covered many areas of learning from overcoming her fear of getting shouted at, getting people to identify with her photos, improving her compositions to the varying styles of street such as portraiture to more compositional shots and making stronger images overall.

Its always good to see a student improve within a workshop. Helen got closer to subjects with each image and her confidence grew as the workshop went on.

I spent the afternoon with the immensely talented, award winning street photographer Linda Wisdom. We talked about everything from overcoming your fear of being shouted at, to getting others to identify with your images, to geometry in your scene.

I've not taken much street photography in my time but it appeals to me, perhaps because as a psychology grad I've always been interested in human behaviour.

Today has reinvigorated me to pound the street's at lunchtime scanning the scene for potential street blips. Who know's, I might even be brave enough to get in close.

Thanks for a fabulous afternoon shooting street Linda. Lots of fun
