About the workshop

This is a practical street and genre photography workshop. In a good company and led by experienced photographers. The workshop envisages mainly individual shooting on sites (we will have enough time for that), as well as some joint sessions with the group leader. Prior to each shooting session, in the process of it, as well as during the discussion of the results (daily) each participant will receive individual consultations on photography and processing. The first meeting is largely alike a portfolio review. Everyone, who would like to know what the group leaders have to say on their photos, prepare a portfolio (about 30 - 40 photos) for a review. Besides the joint discussions, each of the participants will have a chance to show to the group leaders the whole materials shot during a day, without pre-selection. This process is an important step in learning how to select photos, and what are the criteria of selection.
