In this two day workshop we will start with looking at and discussing the work of masters of street photography. We will discuss different strategies to photograph people/strangers on the street, lens selections, use of existing light, capturing candid moments of a single subject or multi-layered images and the photographer's physicality in the space they are photographing The afternoon will be spent photographing using some of the techniques and skills we discussed. Some specific assignments will be made to include in the photographs

In the second meeting we will review some of the images taken during the first session - what worked best and what other approaches or techniques might have been used to change or make the image stronger.

We'll talk about what differentiates street and photojournalism as well as other subjects that evolve out of the groups' images.
