Workshop / Class: Street Photography

This is not a regular street photography meetup.  I have prepared custom content collected over many years.  I will take you to a secret indoor location where we will sit down and spend the first two hours going over theory, discussions, tricks and tips that are not obvious but will spot when you go shooting with advanced streetogs.

If you're too scared to approach people, awesome!  This workshop is for you.  I guarantee that in the third hour when we hit the street and practise what you've learned, your courage will be up 1000%.  

I will coordinate a date with those who RSVP.  If we get more than three people signed up, I will create a multiple separate dates and match the group with similar skill levels.  I limit this workshop to three people at a time only.

There is a ton of content.  You are encouraged to take notes.  Don't worry, it's not all techy stuff.  Some of it you will be quiet surprised and find humorous.

Here are some of the objectives:

• Key concepts covered by Eric Kim

• Composition 

• Developing the creative eye (referencing Magnum Photographers)

• Approaching people (various techniques)

• Camera settings in various scenarios

• Post processing: I'll break out my laptop to demonstrate my post processing suggestions and tools I use

We will NOT be branching off doing our own thing in the third hour.  We will be sticking together while we complete the exercises.   I love street photography and keeping the group small and intimate so we can do more one on one.  

Prerequisites:

• Beginners+ welcomed (Advanced photographers and paid professionals, this might not be a target meetup for you)  Some of the content includes exposure triad, rule of thirds and other compositional ingredients that will vary with the changing light, scenes and subject in the urban landscape.  

• Camera.  Lens focal length would be best 50mm or lower. 

• No tripods

• Flash is optional but we can use it if you bring one. 

I am charging a non-refundable fee of $10 if you don't show up to the agreed scheduled workshop.  I am not doing this for the money and trying to prevent no-shows.  I will work out a schedule in groups of 3 people at a time if the date is not good for you.

    Dang, I missed this one. While I like to do street photography I lack the confidence to approach people. Will be keeping an eye out for a workshop at the end of November.

    Hello~
    May I join your Street Photography Workshop?
    I have been taking photo of my family for more than 10 years.
    However, this is my first time to try street photo.

    Is there any available time for me?

    Hey all Beginners,
    I've never met a photographer yet that has never shared their experiences and better camera know how. Its better to learn more with photo enthusiasts with all kinds of experiences. Dont put yourself in a box, mix and mingle with others and you will learn allot more. Hope to see you there.

      Rick, I am creating sub groups based on skill level so that it helps the flow of the workshop. There are some who signed up that have over 30 years experience. There are some that have no experience. I tailer the content. This isn't a regular meetup. I will be leading the small sub groups through quite a bit of content, discussion, and practical exercises.

      I work with each sub-group to find dates that work for them. (unless your'e not available for the month of November)

      October 19, 2013

  • Jeff G.

    Ok everyone, I have have sent out all the schedules for each group. Please check your email and respond to the information I have requested. While I proposed three possible dates within each group, if none of them work for you, let me know before you ask for a refund. I will come up with alternate dates. Please understand that I'm scheduling this with others in your group so if you do have the option to be a little flexible, it's greatly appreciated. FOR ALL COMMUNICATION WITH ME GOING FORWARD: Use my personal email address as stated in my last message to you. I can't track wall posts on here. Thanks everyone!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
