Street Photography

Saturday 29 April
The Battery - 10am - 2 Hours
Charleston Photography Group
People, cafes, vendors, street merchants, buskers, historic buildings, art installations and much more. The power of observation underpins the art of great street photography. Learning to "see" interesting detail is a practised skill and we introduce you to easy methods that will open your photographer's eye and expose you to a world that is alive with detail. The most rewarding part of the class is learning how to approach interesting people and have them willingly pose for you. We will also go over settings, focusing techniques and lens choices common to street photography to help us capture those random chance encounters.

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 in Charleston .

  • 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 Charleston Photography Group on Facebook to share your photos after the session.

    April did a wonderful job of sharing the creative options for this type of photography. She was extremely patient with those of us who struggled with our camera settings. Despite that she also helped with what settings to use in different shooting conditions. We were lucky to have a small class so she could give us individual instruction. I do feel I have a renewed interest in my photography which was a goal of mine. She helped trigger any creative spark that's been asleep for a few years!
    I enjoyed spending the morning with April. Despite the uncooperative weather, she kept it light and collaborative. She gave me some good coach points and offered her perspective on things.
