Taught by Vinny Senguttuvan
Vinny enjoys writing and photography. He taught creative writing at the University of Miami, which was awesome.
The advent of handheld cameras in the mid-1900s made Street Photography a popular and significant part of visual art and documentation. Today, a new surge in city-life and the launch of smartphones and photography apps have created a renaissance for Street Photography, making it more relevant and exciting as a tool for visual art and social commentary.
This class will focus on various aspects of Street Photography, including the technical (camera settings and editing tools), the aesthetic (composition and review of important photographers) and the practical (how to approach subjects on the street).
In the first session, we will review and discuss the topics listed above. And for the second session, students will bring a set of their photographs that we will view and discuss in the context of the first session, focusing on the positives.
The weekend before the second session, we will plan an optional photo-walk through an interesting neighborhood. Students are welcome to join in and/or shoot on their own.
You can use any camera for this class. An SLR, a point-and-shoot or iPhone 4/4S (or the Android equivalent).
