This is a cultural and street style photography workshop. Both your instructors have extensive photojournalism and education skills. We will be using nearly all our time from dawn into the night to shoot a variety of subjects and scenes including people, architecture and cityscapes. In the five days you will improve your skills while experiencing an amazing slice of the country. We will practice both candid and posed portraits taking advantage of natural scenes and light using supplemental lighting. All should return home with new found experiences and dynamic photographs.
