[EDIT - FULL] Street photography walk/workshop in London - Saturday, 8 April 2017

This is a practical introduction to street photography in London, suitable for beginners or intermediates, given by well-known street photographer Paul Russell (www.paulrussell.info).

It takes the form of an informal walk and discussions around London’s vibrant West End (with around 4 hours walking/shooting and 2 hours sitting/discussion).

We will be attempting 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 that we can assess photos on the day.

Topics that will be covered include:

• Spotting possible photo opportunities
• Promising locations in Covent Garden and Soho
• 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
• Street photography camera techniques, e.g. zone focusing
• Learning to anticipate and make the most of interesting situations.

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


Essential details
Date: Saturday, 8 April 2017, 12 to 6 pm
