Why You Will Love This Course: Get lost in your own city using prime lenses on this street walk! Prime lenses generally offer a larger maximum aperture, which enables quicker shutter speeds. Faster prime lenses aren’t just good for avoiding camera-shake and freezing the action in dull lighting conditions but also in advantage is that get a much shallower depth of field, enabling you to isolate the main subject in a shot by blurring the background.
This course has been developed to gain knowledge and put theory into practice through an interactive hands on photography street walk experience. On the walk we will take a few turns down more interesting streets in search of graffiti and other stencils giving us different and unique backdrops for our photography. Returning to the training suite, you will get the opportunity to review the stories behind your favourite photos as a group.
Reach your full potential and master the following techniques:
Prime lens options - understanding different focal lengths
Shutter Speed - Freezing the action
Aperture - Controlling depth of field
Zoom with your feet - Composition and perspective techniques
Outlining the legality of street photography
Seeing like a painter, understanding your subjects and the art of patience
Duration: 4 Hours
What To Bring? Your camera fully charged and camera manual, notepad and pen. If you have a prime lens we also recommend bringing it along.

You may find it beneficial to keep existing photos on your memory card for critique by our trainer.
