Street Photography

Saturday the 12th of February
Sydney CBD - 4:00pm - 2 hours
"Street photography" is a phrase that's been so overused in the past decade or so that it's really lost all meaning. Instagram copycats of Bruce Gilden and Gary Winogrand abound, the photography world's equivalent of a lousy wedding cover band. So what is street photography in 2022? We'll explore concepts and attempt to make a good picture in this informal meetup.

ABOUT SYDNEY
PHOTOGRAPHY
GROUP
Come along to our photo sessions to dust off your camera and get snap-happy with a professional photography instructor.
Brush up on your camera skills and learn new photography techniques whilst on a photo walk class with other local keen photographers!

We run two hour photography sessions based on a photography theme/technique/style and they take place in various locations across the region.
New to photography? We also run a popular 3 hour Beginners Guide to Photography Class once a month.
And once in a while we will run special niche 3 hour classes, for example, Astrophotography - so do subscribe to our newsletter to know when the next on is!

Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!

The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.

Join the Sydney Photography Facebook Group here to share your photos after the session.



We ask that everyone attending a meetup follows social distancing guidelines:

Stay home if you're sick.
Keep 1.5 metres away from others.
Don't make unnecessary physical contact with others. Avoid physical greetings, such as handshakes, hugs and kisses.
Wash your hands regularly with alcohol-based sanitiser.
* Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Use a flexed elbow or a tissue; if you use a tissue, dispose of it immediately and appropriately.

Great event and Ran was very helpful to me in a class where I was very much the beginner compared to a lot of the others. I'm looking forward to doing some more classes with him.

So glad I booked this course. As a novice photographer, I didn't know if I would find this course challenging. But Ran explained the technical and creative principles very clearly, in a staggered way, where I was very surprised at the photos I began to capture within the 2 hours. I came away feeling much more confident and managed to take some pleasing shots.
