As your imagination is freed your skill levels will be elevated in this immersive Masterclass. We will walk through some of the most vibrant and colourful streets of London.
We will get the chance to explore many techniques from storytelling to the abstract, colour to black and white and all that we experience along the way.
This exclusive event takes place within a small and relaxed group setting with a maximum of 12 people. The workshop is designed to suit all skill levels. Join us and bring this genre alive, excite the photographic palette and provide inspiration for years to come.
1pm– Meet at Kahaila Coffee Shop 135 Brick Ln, London E1 6SB for an
introduction, coffee and cake (my favourite coffee shop in the area) and where we can share some information about Street Photography and our hopes and expectations for the day, as well as understanding something of the area.
1.45: We will leave the café and start putting into practice techniques while getting information around the areas many points of interest.
Our immersive experience of photographing the area will include:
Techniques to capture the people in the area, including candid or posed.
What compositions work best in this setting.
Techniques to improve the chances of getting ‘that shot.’
Black and white or colour?
Making the best use of light sources.
Do we chase the image by moving or stay and wait for it to come to us?
4pm: Coffee / tea. As the light fades, we will break for a meal. We will decide where, depending on the groups dietary needs and wishes, but Shoreditch is not short of places to eat, or we can head to China Town. As we socialise Adrian will be able to guide us on anything we would like to know about Social Media and especially Instagram
6pm – 9pm: We will continue our immersive photographic experience but this time in the life and vibrancy of London’s China Town and Soho, two districts adjacent to each other and a short tube journey from Shoreditch.
Here we will continue to use the techniques from earlier but learn how to adapt them for low light and night photography. These areas offer endless opportunities to get creative with settings, light, the abstract and more.
9pm: We will end at 9pm but for those with the energy, or after a little bit more there is a free add on to catch the Christmas Lights, to try bokeh photography, light trails and just enjoy the lights.
It would be best if you came with the following equipment:
DSLR, Mirrorless Camera or Phone
Fully charged battery and memory card.
Appropriate clothing for potential inclement weather.
For the evening you can bring a lightweight tripod if you wish but not essential.
