About the workshop

Workshop format

This is a practical workshop on street photography. In a good company and led by experienced photographers.

The main focus of the workshop is on street photography. This definition, though, is not no be taken literally, since we do not limit ourselves to street photography only. However, we will be "hunting" on the streets. The workshop envisages mainly individual shooting on sites (sufficient time is provided for that), however, the participants can also join the group leader in small groups. Every day we will be getting together for 2-3 hours, to discuss the photos made.

Apart from the photos taken during the workshop, each participant, willingly, can prepare a portfolio of his or her previous works (about 20-30 photos) for discussion.

Who is this workshop intended for?

Anyone can join the group. There are no particular requirements as regards to the photo equipment or the level of preparedness. The only thing that you need to have is a desire to shoot artistically. For the beginners, it is desirable to master basic shooting skills, some knowledge of camera controls and elementary skills in photo processing, so we lose less time on discussing technical aspects
