Fear of photographing strangers dictates the pictures we make, inhibits projects and even alters our career trajectories. This intensive, yet fun, workshop tackles these anxieties head on by motivating and empowering you. You will address the relative discomfort around this type of portraiture by photographing your classmates all while building your confidence at the same time. Not just a street photography class, this class will help you find and create a narrative through portraiture as well as give you tools to continue on your own beyond the class experience. We will venture to neighboring towns, state fairs, festivals and more!
