Documentary and Street Photography (five-session workshop)

This digital photography workshop will focus on capturing street life and architecture during photographic walks, around Philly, in the neighborhoods surrounding Fleisher Art Memorial.

We will explore various methods of shooting action in varying lighting situations, working both in groups and individually. We will critique and view the work of other photographers. Because of the length of this class we will not be printing any images.

You should know how to use your camera, and it must have manual settings.

Please note that this classroom is accessible by stairs only.

  • How to manipulate photographic exposures to create beautiful images using both manual and automatic camera settings

  • Learn how to approach, and talk to people you want to photograph as subjects

  • How to shoot from the hip, unnoticed
