Street Photography Workshop: North Beach
Sat, April 29, 2017, 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM PDT
Tale of Two Cultures
Join International Street Photographer David Coleman along some of San Francisco’s oldest streets and observe history in the making in North Beach. Once a veritable microcosm of Italy, the neighborhood’s last decade has been marked by a gradual emigration of Italian residents and an influx of those from next door’s Chinatown.
David will teach you street photography techniques and visual storytelling skills for capturing this cultural convergence, using the intimate cafés, street signs, and even the “Italian Cathedral of the West” as inspired backdrops to your street photography. Along the way, you’ll learn local history and explore hidden places that only the most seasoned residents know about.
An (optional) group lunch at the culmination of this 3-hour photography workshop provides the chance to discover delicious local fare, connect with your small group of fellow photographers, and reflect on your experience in the field.
- Three hours of small-group and one-on-one instruction, in which David teaches how to capture a public space and compose a personal narrative with images.
- A virtual, one-hour photography critique session (held one week after the workshop), in which David provides constructive feedback and uses Adobe Lightroom to demonstrate best editing techniques for each workshop participant’s photographs.

Workshops will take place in the case of light rain—sometimes this makes for the best photographs!
