Join Dave to learn and practice new ways of creating compelling travel and street photographs.

There are no available registration dates at this time.

NOTE: This Course will be Held in an Online Format using the Zoom Platform.

Our learning begins with a constructive review of student’s images to help set goals for the week. We gain further inspiration from images Dave has gathered from international photographers. With daily goals and serendipitous light, students explore their home locations or afar to practice skills with themed shooting assignments. Students share their selected favorites via DropBox for class-wide reviews and constructive critique. Throughout the week, discussions focus on tuning into surroundings, setting intentions, approaching people, connecting or not, designing the frame and technical mastery. On-screen demos include travel research, shooting styles, POV, street techniques, decisive timing, and adding modified light for dynamic street portraiture. Students can also experiment with blurred action, backlighting, raking light and optional nighttime street scapes. 

Dave also demonstrates his expert skills in Lightroom and related tools to help students refine their captures and imbue them with a unique look for personal style.

Any digital SLR, Mirrorless or digital Rangefinder camera that has manual exposure ‘M’ mode is ideal for this workshop. A ‘less is more’ gear philosophy is encouraged. Students may process their captures in any software they prefer. Contact Dave directly with any content or technical questions about this workshop.
