Field Guide II: The Street

  • 33 Washington St Brooklyn, NY, 11201 United States (map)



Who should take this class?

This workshop is ideal for students and street shooters who are already experienced with basic mechanics of cameras (controlling exposure, focus, aperture, shutter speed) and want to develop their technique and experiment with natural light. It's a great class for those who want to perfect their practice and work faster on their toes. And for those who want to push their skills to a more intuitive level.

What you will learn

This six-hour workshop connects technical and creative concerns when photographing in the unpredictable nature of the city landscape.  A more advanced course, The Street challenges students to get out and use the environment as a working tool, putting their learning to practice by observing and capturing compelling light, colors and compositions. We'll be practicing this on the street, but these skills will help you later in any type of photography. 

What to bring?

Bring your camera and we will provide you with a syllabus and field guide notebook.



If you are not familiar with controlling exposure through aperture, shutter speed and ISO, and generally working in manual mode, we strongly recommend signing up for Field Guide I: The Camera.
