Street Photography Begins this Weekend!

Street Photography Begins this Weekend!

Develop your love of photography while learning how to capture life on the street! In this advanced-beginner photography class we will explore the creative and practical aspects of street photography as a way to learn more about our cameras and explore different photographic techniques. Through hands-on experience, we will learn how to effectively create engaging imagery while incorporating composition, light, cropping, vantage point, shooting in low light and using our flash.
