This workshop offers a condensed exploration of what street photography is and can be. Following an introduction to a wide range of both historical and contemporary street work, assignments and critiques provoke a spirited exchange of ideas. We also look at great photography books, work online, and video documentaries. Students learn to produce pictures with a personal point of view while developing a galvanized sense of awareness of why street photography remains a powerfully important means of depicting life.

Course Level / Prerequisite: Intermediate: You are familiar with a camera, whether film or digital. You understand aperture, shutter speed, exposure, white balance, histograms, and how to control focus. You are comfortable editing and processing your images. You may want to learn how to utilize your camera in a more thoughtful and articulate way, or learn more about lighting or how to utilize theoretical concepts in relation to your portfolio of work.

On the first day of class please bring ten of the strongest photographs you have made thus far. They do not all need to be street photographs. These can be prints or on a flash drive. Write and print out on one page why these pictures are significant to you and what you feel it is that you need to nurture your growth as a picture-maker. Also prior to the first class please read the essayThe Unreasonable Apple (2010) by Paul Graham and BRING YOUR CAMERA TO EVERY CLASS! An additional photographic assignment will be sent to registered students one week before the class start date.
