Join renowned street photographer Harvey Stein in this 3-day workshop to learn how to create meaningful and inventive portraits of people in a street environment.
November 8-10, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The street photographer is often considered one of our best resources for defining the mood and culture of a city. In this three-day workshop, participants will be asked to document various locations around DFW and the people who populate it. The workshop will address ways to make strong images that “take the pulse” of the city.
Topics discussed include what it means to photograph strangers and strategies to approach them, methods of overcoming shyness, and ways of controlling light and exposure in the street. Which lenses and cameras are best for street shooting, various lighting situations faced by the street photographer, and ways of posing and interacting with people will also be covered.
Students will be encouraged to use their intuition to explore areas both familiar and unfamiliar to them to expand their world view, and to participate in the drama of the ordinary.
