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.

    The course w/Julia was different than I expected; however, it pushed me out of my comfort zone of photography. Julia is a great teacher and was able to get all students into B&W photography settings which really inspired me to stay in monochrome the rest of the day.

    A day of harsh high-in-the-sky sun, complicated further by my breaking the rules of our game and shooting into the sun yielded a surreal capture, more about feel than about fact...lol

    Title or Location: River St., Savannah, GA
    River St in Savannah has a European feel to it so I enjoy doing street photography there. I did multiple shots while the woman was seated, alone. I waited for some more human interest and luckily for me, the couple with their dog happened by. As with most of my street photography, I used a Nikon Z7 wide open with a 24-70 f4 lens set at 24mm.

    Dearing the eclipse of 2017 my family and I sat in our backyard here in WA to watch the 93 totality with our eclipse glasses. With my homemade solar filter attached to my camera, I took a series of photos of the sun during the eclipse. After processing my sun photos, I was disappointed to see that the moon only showed up as a black hole and not its proper form. I am an avid shooter of Astro photography and have several photos of the moon taken from my backyard and multiple other locations. I

    I took this image on Nov. 2, 2021 at 7 am on Nov. 2, 2001 at 7 am. As I was driving around the Cove I came upon this Buck as I came up over a rise. I had a feeling that he was about to cross the road. My hunch was right. He crossed one fence and eventually crossed the other one. I was ready for his movement. I took a series over shots. It was very exciting.Canon EF 100-400 f4.5 - 5.6L ISO 4,000 f8 1/200s

    Canon EOS 800DEF 75-300 f/4-5.675mm1/640F4.5ISO 200I was out practicing my technique. Had spent a little while chasing squirrels around the park. This took me to an area of the park I had not been in. The way these two tulips were complete opposites and yet seem to lean on each other drew my attention to them.
