Over the years Dave McKane, the tutor for this course, has discovered that for a street photograph to be successful something in the scene has to be meaningful to the photographer even, if that something is not immediately apparent. Effective street photography is about telling a story in a single frame, not simply recording what was there at a particular time and in a specific place.
Henri Cartier-Bresson, probably one of the greatest proponents of street photography ever, once said:
“Photography is not like painting. There is a creative fraction of a second when you are taking a picture. Your eye must see a composition or an expression that life itself offers you, and you must know, with intuition, when to click the camera. That is the moment the photographer is creative, Oop! The Moment! Once you miss it, it is gone forever.”
On this special course, Dave will emphasize how important this approach to street photography is.
