Street Photography Course in London
This short Street Photography course aims to introduce you to some of the practical and technical considerations of street photography but also to unpack some of the significance and meaning of what it actually means to be a street photographer.
We will discuss and, of course, practice, some different aspects and approaches to street photography including: Abstract, Classic, In your face, Modern / content centric and Graphic.
Street photography has been around since the dawn of photographic history. In fact, some of the very first images ever recorded back in the mid 19th century were street photographs. If you ever go into a pub and are fascinated by the old photographs of local street scenes adorning the wall, then you are fascinated by at least one element of street photography.
Street photography is to record people and how they interact within the world which we, as people, have built around ourselves. Its intriguing, appalling, shocking, playful, unexpected, depressing, thought provoking – the list of emotional responses goes on and on. Street photography is to invite, through the lens, a wide gamut of emotional, intellectual, but always human responses to the world we inhabit.
