Workshop price £15
This INCLUDES TICKET ENTRY FEE to The CLASSIC CAR & VINTAGE SALE
We're transported back to the 1950s & 60's street on our photographic assignment to document this annual vehicular vintage delight; A vintage boot sale - with more than 100 classic cars, campers vintage vans & bikes ... a cornucopia of vintage clothing, accessories, household goods, memorabilia, vinyl records, street food, fairground rides, slideshows, impromptu musical performances and street theater with people dressing up for the period - all on display for our photographic taking.
A great opportunity to capture images of London's street life at it's most vibrant.
We'll work at improving our compositions & manual control of our cameras - practice " the rules " & breaking the rules, the Decisive Moment. We will look at the methods of street photography inspired by Henri Cartier Bresson "The Godfather of Street Photography " & the different approach of New York Magnum photography Bruce Gilden.
When Henri Cartier-Bresson would talk about “The Decisive Moment” he said sometimes it would be spontaneous but others times he had to be patient and wait for it - for the right opportunity to come along -we'll practice patience & observance, getting the right exposures & metering correctly, taking into account that this area is against the backdrop of The Thames & by the shadow of bridges. Some great portrait photography to be captured.
At the end of our photography session, we'll retire to one of the many Southbank Cafes - probably in the Festival Hall which has plenty of space & great views & have a well earned drink & some food & take a look at our creations & share & chat.
