Description

Street Photography can be an enticing and intimidating style of shooting for even the most advanced photographers. This course is designed for photographers with a confident grasp of their equipment, and the way they shoot as an advanced amateur or professional but feel the need to cut their teeth with some time searching for subjects in the concrete jungle. All Advanced sessions have the option of either Daylight, or Low Light hours.

Street Photography is a fantastic way to keep yourself spry, helping exercise techniques that are easily applicable to photographers who find themselves shooting weddings, fashion, even editorial portraiture.

The Basic pass to this course will cover the following, and much much more.

Advanced equipment fluency - Taking your understanding of your equipment to the next rung, learning how to take advantage of things like hyperfocal shooting, shutter drag, and even strobe as part of your street workflow.

Hunting vs. Gathering - Classic techniques of either keeping on the move and finding your subjects by chance or laying in wait for the perfect frame to cross your path. Find your flow, do you work a corner for hours on end like Meyerowitz? or cut through the crowd at a clip like Gilden?

Street Portraiture - The slower more intentional twin to classic street reportage, this section of the session will help you learn to stop people in the street, and make quick but intimate portraits of passersby, who will often, in the end, adore you for making their portrait on the fly.

BW vs. Color - Black and White is often thought of as the classic vernacular of Street Photographers, but with such fantastically capable digital systems at our fingertips, applying color theory to your work can give you a visual edge depending on your subject. We aim to talk through the stylistic choices in a deeper manner, and help you build your own visual style.

Advanced Theory - Much of the theory spoken of by street photographers is often hotly debated. This course aims to give you a base from which to speak from, and references to great work that can help you consider the way you want to make your images as an individual shooter in the long run.

The VIP pass includes an extra hour of shooting, as well as a one on one critique session and a custom batch of Lightroom Street Presets.

All workshops include an invitation to the OutlierImagery Alumni group, with special vouchers and early access for future events.

Testimonials -

“I had the opportunity to spend the day in a 1x1 workshop with Daniel and it was fantastic. We worked at my pace, on the topics that I wanted to train on. Camera set up, Lightroom workflow, street style shooting techniques, etc. were all part of our day. As a working professional portrait photographer, it was a delight to step back and spend the day with another professional, looking at my portfolio and discussing both the technical and business aspects of photography. ”— John Hall, LA - Advanced visual storytelling.


“Whenever I have a question about photography I can always rely on Daniel to give me an insightful and specific answer. He really is the one person I can trust when it comes to knowledge about photographic equipment. He has not failed me once, and not only is this a sign of a good professional, but also a good friend. On top of that, he taught me how to work in a studio, coming along with me to give me hands-on tips and tricks. I can work by myself now, but it is people like him that have given me confidence in my artistic endeavors and technical prowess.”— Maria, NYC - Advanced studio practices.


“Just finished a two-day workshop with Daniel. I have to say that is is one of if not the best one I have attended. — He helped me get to know my camera better and all the nuances about it that certainly help raise an ordinary snapshot to that of a real photograph. Daniel did not try to change my style but instead, his constant probing and critique pushed me to think of what I was shooting in ways I have not done so before. I was pushed beyond my comfort zone, which is something I have not felt in a long time!”— Roy, LA - Advanced Street workshop.
