At a glance
The street workshop begins with a casual meet and greet, along with going through the technical side where we will make sure you have a good understanding of the essence of Street Photography. We will discuss how we can see things in a busy scene, how to deconstruct a composition before taking the shot.
Next, we walk through the ancient town, usually in an afternoon when there’s plenty of activity on the streets with good light. After our time shooting, we have an editing/ review session where we go over the photos from the shoot. At this point, students will also have access to our street photography/documentary photo book collection, which will give more insight into the exciting world of street photography.
What we call Street Photography is not taking photos in the streets. Street photography is about seeing beyond the obvious and adding more elements in your frame for better or more quirky storytelling.
Do not expect to photography women in conical hats in front of the yellow walls in Hoi An, this is Travel Photography.
It is ideal for street photography to work with one camera and one lens. A focal length of between 28 to 35mm is ideal for this type of photography, but not necessary. Any kit lens would also work.
The streets photography workshops that we run are not designed to teach you about camera settings, or the very basic rules of composition. In order to compose an image and capture a moment, there is no time to hesitate with the camera settings.
Indeed, experience taught us that we do not need more to help you through the basic things. And you’ll have to put up with A LOT of information!
