Teacher Michael Dees
Imagine a gritty black and white image. It’s in the busy city, where there are stark shadows, bright light, and many hardened faces. They are strangers passing each other on their way to fulfill goals, some good and others bad. But there’s one innocent face, almost in the corner, that happens to be looking right at you. Their expression is somewhere between being lost and confused, and pondering who you are, and what your goals are, as you stare at them.
Can you see this frame? Street photography is often an invitation to participate in the story of others. You don’t know the subject – yet – but perhaps that can change. Or maybe you just enjoy the experience of fancying a narrative that happens to be the opposite of the truth that you will never know!
This class is designed as an introduction to street photography, but a challenging one. The class will cover some theory to get a mindset fit to hit the pavement and interact with others. Tips will be given concerning technique, both for the camera and how to seek to get the right shot. Topics such as editing and post-processing will be covered as well as you put it all together in a five-image project by the end of the course.
