Street Photography

7 sessions


12:30 to 2:30

1/29 – 3/12

Location: Building 3, room 3-115

Four of our classes are in the field. Locations may include downtown Sarasota, St. Armand's Circle, John & Mable Ringling Museum, and others.

Students show photographs from excursions during two classes.

During the first class:

• The ethics and legalities of street photograph are reviewed.

• Strategies for dealing any apprehension about photographing on the street are discussed.

• Examples of styles of street photography are presented, such as in-your-face, candid, posed, fashion, formal (graphic/abstract/impressionistic/juxtaposition), documentary (story), and so forth.

By the end of the class, students have an idea for a street-photography project.

Any digital camera is okay.

Bring your camera's manual if you have one. Make sure the battery is charged and that there's space on the memory card.

Got a question? Ask the teacher, Jim Beecher, at Ask Jim.
