Street Photography

Saturday 20 July
Golf Course Dr. - 1pm - 2 Hours
Daniel Becerra
People, cafes, vendors, street merchants, buskers, historic buildings, art installations and much more. The power of observation underpins the art of great street photography. Learning to "see" interesting detail is a practised skill and we introduce you to easy methods that will open your photographer's eye and expose you to a world that is alive with detail. The most rewarding part of the class is learning how to approach interesting people and have them willingly pose for you.

We will also go over settings, focusing techniques and lens choices common to street photography to help us capture those random chance encounters.

    My experience taking Thomas's workshop is 10/10! Thomas is a great teacher and does a very nice job of breaking down the manual parts of the camera to someone new to it. This workshop is an excellent value. I will surely be taking any other classes Thomas offers. Looking forward to the next one! Thank you, Thomas!!

    Enjoyed the event. Received lots of good information to start my hobby of taking pictures with my Canon camera. Walking Balboa was fun and I learned and practiced the photography basics. I had time to focus on thinking the settings of the shot before taking it and review of shots taken to answer all my questions. I would recommend the class. The class objectives were met. This class has gotten me more excited about spending time taking pictures with my camera. Thomas is a good teacher and enjoys sharing his knowledge at the appropriate student level.

    Title or Location: San Luis Obispo
    I was visiting San Luis Obispo when I saw the sky developing into a nice sunset: layered clouds and fog flowing in from the coast. I had lived in SLO before so I knew where I wanted to go, but I had very little time. I was about 15 minutes away and then had a short hike up Terrace Hill. In my rush I only brought my 55 to 300mm, and I wanted more of the vista. So this was taken with my iPhone 14.

    Title or Location: Rocky Mountain National Park
    The day before taking the shot, I drove up to RMNP to scout a possible Milky Way shot with Nymph Lake in the foreground. The scouting was successful as it did look like I'd be able to have both the lake and the Milky Way in the shot, so I made a plan to head up there again the next day (July 3rd) and capture what I planned. Prior to heading back up to RMNP, while looking at the map of the area, I noticed another possible location where Fall River would be in the foreground and in my mind, having

    A friend of mine discovered this bald eagle nest just north of Lititz. I've been keeping an eye on it for a decent shot. This adult has been keeping guard of its juveniles for some time now. I finally saw the adult sitting just to the right of the nest. I am a very new and amateur photographer and still very much learning. I travel quite a bit and enjoy shooting the places I visit but also love wildlife photography. I really didn't process much other than bring up some of the exposure to g

    Me and my partner spent the day at Bempton cliffs and this was the only lone puffin that had it back to the sea, He/she was clearly not wanting to socialise with other birds. Possibly in a bad mood. This is why this particular puffing grabbed my attention.
