Who doesn’t love to travel and bring home souvenir photographs from their adventures? However, capturing not only the highlights, but the essence of a city can be a challenge at times. In this Workshop, we will go over how to capture the soul of a city, its people and its culture. This is what we really want to capture after all... Not postcard pictures - but a series of images that capture the essence of a place.
In this Workshop, we will cover:
• Lighting in travel - natural and portable;
• The use of decisive moments/gestures and other techniques to create more meaningful and impactful images;
• Photography gear that you might consider taking on your next trip;
• What to pack and how to pack; and
• Approaches on people, landscapes, cityscapes and street photography in a destination away from home
You will come away from this Workshop with a new perspective on what to look for when shooting photos on vacation or any sort of trip as well as tips on what minimal gear is necessary to capture those photographs. Point and Shoot and Camera Phone users are welcome!
Requirements: Bring pen and paper for notes as well as lots of questions!
