Photographing on the streets requires all the senses and quick reflexes. At every moment, there are possibilities to create meaning, humor and subtleties of life in a photograph. The most essential element in capturing an evocative unplanned image is going out with open eyes and a curious mind, walking and searching and walking and discovering. In this course, students hit the street and photograph as a group for some sessions. Other sessions focus on reviews of student work and guest artists from the field of street photography. Students learn to be more comfortable trusting the voice in their head that asks, "I wonder what will that scene will look like in a photograph?"
