[EDIT - FULL] Street photography walk/workshop in Bath – Saturday, 27 May 2017!

This is a practical introduction to street photography suitable for beginners or intermediates, given by well-known street photographer Paul Russell (

It takes the form of an informal walk and discussions around the compact Georgian city of Bath (with about 4 hours strolling/shooting and 1 hour sitting/discussion).

We will be practising observational, candid street photography in the tradition of Cartier-Bresson and Garry Winogrand. This will involve taking candid photos – not asking people for portraits. Participants should bring a digital camera so we can review photos on the day.

Topics covered will include:

• Spotting possible photo opportunities
• How to take interesting photos including people without using a telephoto
• Methods for overcoming photographer’s block
• The importance of having themes in mind when shooting
• How to be discreet using body language/demeanour
• Learning to anticipate and make the most of interesting situations
• Street photography camera techniques, e.g. zone focusing.

The most interesting photos from the day will be displayed together online to provide a photographic record of the day (as for the 2016 Bath walk/workshop here).

Date: Saturday 27 May 2017, 12 to 5 pm
