Street photography is one of the most popular genres of photography, yet it is difficult to create an image that hits all the right notes: dynamic compositions, engaging viewing experience and strong subject matter. This class is ideal for students who want to learn how to capture compelling moments of ordinary life, urban street scenes, candid and street portraits, and the poetry of everyday life. Discussions on photography concepts like exposure/ shutter speed/F-stop composition, and using available light to emphasize a street scene will enable students to apply those concepts to their practice. The class meets at ICP and at different locations around the city. The class also explores the work of different photographers like Diane Arbus, Josef Koudelka, Vivian Maier and Helen Levitt.

Course Level / Prerequisite: Open to all skill levels. Students ranging from beginner to experienced will be successful in classes that are Open to All Skill Levels.
