Street Photography Workshop - Birmingham

Learn how to shoot the most difficult genre of photography.

Saturday, September, 1st, 2018, 2pm - 9pm

Imagine this… Your walking slowly through the centre of Birmingham, looking for photographs and you spot something so unique that you absolutely have to make the picture but the only way for it be a street photograph is for there to be some kind of human interest. You can feel your breathing change and a level of excitement run through your veins. You’ve checked the backdrop and worked out how to make the composition but then you’ve got to point your camera at somebody from close range and make their photograph.

It’s usually this point that most people crumble! For good reason too, it’s scary, exhilarating and one of the bravest things you can do with a camera.

I’ve been shooting street photography for the past 7 years and absolutely love the thrill with so much passion.

This is a rare opportunity to learn how to shoot street photography because it’s the first one I'm running in this genre. I’ve been running workshops for a long time now but it’s a first in the street but only because it’s my thing and I usually work alone.

I’ve considered this carefully to give you the best experience possible.

This is what you’ll learn on the workshop:

  • How to set up your camera for street

  • How to focus and get the right exposure for street

  • How to identify potential photographs

  • What to look out for on the street

  • The identification of decent backdrops or locations

  • A brief overview of the laws and regulations concerning street photography

  • Pre-guidance with inspiring work prior to the workshop

  • How to become invisible on the street

  • How to make a photograph of somebody without them noticing

  • How to deal with somebody if they do notice you

  • Conflict resolution (never needed it yet)

  • When you shouldn’t make the photo and how to say not to your instincts.

This is what you’ll get for your money:

  • A photography experience like no other

  • Many lessons in photography rolled in to one day

  • The chance to work with a very small group of like minded photographers

  • An afternoon and evening working with your camera in an urban environment, doing street photography and making beautiful artwork

  • You’ll put yourself on to a completely different level in one day. Your photographs will never be the same again

  • An insight in to the crazy world of the street photographer

  • Dinner will be included with some social time in a pub

  • Pick up and return to Hinckley.

You don’t need to be an experienced photographer for this workshop but you will need some bravery.

We’ll be working in vastly differing lighting conditions from hard day time light, golden hour orange with long shadows and low light after dark.

You don’t need a dslr for street photography. You can use what ever camera you like, the smaller the better. If you shoot with a dslr, you’re welcome to come along but rest assured, you’ll find it more difficult because it’s more about blending in to the environment.

I usually shoot street with a Panasonic Lumix LX100 but often shoot street with my iPhone. Both are small and almost pocket sized.
