Street photography is an exercise in the art of observation: paying attention to the theater that goes on in every city and town, and capturing moments that tell stories.
In this online video course, I hits the streets of New York City to share insights on the art of candid street photography, from gear choices to shooting techniques. I show you how to immerse yourself in the thick of things, overcome your nerves, and adjust your camera to respond as quickly as possible. I had great fun doing this my first Lynda.com course and there’s a few more to come so I’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, let me know what you think, and if you have any suggestions for courses or just making the courses better let me know.
This video course is nearly 2 hours long and it’s a great resource for the emerging street photographer as well as a primer for those who are looking to brush up on their skills (and nerves). Topics include:
- Street photography gear
- Shooting with a long lens
- Photographing a crowd
- Focusing on people
- Getting permission to photograph someone
- Shooting people in motion
- Photographing people in a sensitive or significant place
- Reviewing images in post
