About This Course

Compelling street photography is about telling an exciting story in a single frame, not merely a snapshot of a particular time & place. If you have a desire to learn how to capture all life as it unfolds on the streets, then this course is for you!

People's expressions are fleeting and a situations compositional opportunities always are in a state of flux. Catching the right moment, particularly when there is more than one person in the frame, is just as difficult as a sports photographer trying to catch the moment of peak action.

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.

As soon as you finish the first Module of this course, all of your photographs will begin to look much better.

What kind of student takes this course?

The ideal student for this course is looking to gently ease themselves into using some key techniques and buttons that will help them improve all of their Street photographs. This course assumes that you have been attempting Program and Aperture Priority Modes, but not necessarily understanding why some effects work, and some do not. Our goal will be to connect the various dots you already have while showing you some simple, yet key Street techniques.

What past experience is needed?

Most students of this course will have only been using Auto or Program Mode up to this point. You might have been testing out Aperture Priority Mode with mixed success. The course does not require any prior knowledge of advanced modes such as Manual Mode.

Recommended Equipment

To get the most out of this course your camera needs to have Aperture and Shutter Priority modes, ideally an SLR or Mirrorless camera (see here for information on the different types of camera).

The course is also suitable for Bridge Cameras and high end Compact/Point & Shoot Cameras, as long as they have Aperture Priority Mode (A or Av).

If you wish to get the most out of the Software section, you will need to have any version of Photoshop (or Photoshop Elements) installed on your desktop or laptop computer..

Learn key camera techniques

You will learn what settings to use for shutter speed and ISO, the key ones for Street Photography. You also understand the best type of lenses to use, along with key handholding techniques.

Learn great post processing tips in the computer 

Using Lightroom, Photoshop (or Photoshop Elements) this course covers many simple techniques that you can quickly use to enhance any Street image. This is also an ideal time to try using Raw Images, as the techniques are much the same as they are for Jpegs, but the quality is usually immeasurably higher, particularly in tricky lighting conditions.

- A free 7-day trial of Photoshop can be downloaded from this link.
- A free 30-day trial of Adobe Photoshop Elements is available for download from this link.

COURSE OUTCOMES

At the end of the course, you will be well-prepared to take better shots in most Street Photography situations, you will know how to take great shots in every outdoor location. You will benefit from all the specific tips about locations, including directions as to how to find the richest ones.

All you will need to do after this great course is get out and shoot!

A note ABOUT OUR TEACHING METHODS

First and foremost, we believe there are no stupid questions, just questions about things you do not understand. On our courses, you will never be made to feel silly for seeking answers or clarification, that is what you pay us for.

All of our courses are designed around common photography scenarios, either ones that you regularly find yourself in, or would like to find yourself in. Our teaching methodology is designed to show you how to take better pictures in every one of them. The content of all of our courses is developed to build on the previous week's tips. This approach allows you quickly and confidently to understand how to improve every photo you take.

We teach each of our courses in such a way that the knowledge you pick up can be easily spread into other areas of image taking. Photography, at its core, is about shutters, apertures, and ISO, but it is HOW you bring these together for each individual shot that matters.
