Learn Street Photography at the Eastern Market

We are meeting at Vivio's Restaurant when they open at 8:00am and grab breakfast before we head over to the market.  While we are at Vivio's, Mike Boening will cover the ins and outs of what is accepted and what to steer clear of when shooting people in public places.  He will talk about style and composition when it comes to street photography as opposed to portrait shooting.  

He will also cover how to create a story with your images. You will create two or three goals for the day and shoot with your list in mind.  It will be a challenge both in photography and how you visually "see" the market and the people interacting in it.

After breakfast we will head out as a group to the market and start shooting! This is meant as a fun exercise in photography to help you capture more captivating images. 

WHAT TO BRING:  Camera, a 50mm prime is great or a mid-range lens.  If you only have the kit lens that will work too.  We will discuss gear for a couple minutes in regards to how going lighter is easier to improve your vision.  No tripods will be needed.

    Great meetup! The seminar portion was very useful, and I enjoyed my first visit ever to Eastern Market. Not sure how I did with "street photography", but I have some great pictures of radishes. I'll share some later. But for now, I'll enjoy my comrade's photos. :)
