Master The Street & Raise Your Game: Travel photography is an exercise in the art of observation: paying attention to the theater in the streets and capturing moments that tell stories. Steve will share his street-shooting philosophies gleaned from a lifetime of wandering urban places with his camera. Steve will encourage you to find your own unique vision and street style getting past photographic fears and clichés to capturing lyrical, poetic and decisive moments that communicate the energy in the places you travel to. He will talk about approaching strangers for street portraits along with gear choices and shooting techniques and elaborate on his process and offer strategies for improving your response time, maximizing sharpness and nailing the shot. OPTIC Special Presenter.
