Street Photography

Bethesda Ave - 11am - 2 Hours
Noah Gomes
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.

    Andrew was knowledgable and flexible, but we were not shooting at a great time of day or in a prime motion blur location. He offered clear instructions with hands-on assistance, and he demonstrated in addition to observing. Very good combo. Nice small group with interesting participants.

    Title or Location: Sultan Ahmet Square, Istanbul, Turkey
    The evening blue sky set the perfect backdrop as I photographed a street side corn seller. The warm, inviting tungsten light of the cart contrasted beautifully with the cool tones of the twilight. The air was filled with the irresistible aroma of roasted corn, and the sight of sparks flying as the vendor skillfully roasted the corn over coal added a touch of magic to the scene. His face radiated confidence and passion as he deftly worked, clearly proud of his craft. To top it off, a lens flare f

    Title or Location: Wilkis Street Tunnel, Alexandria, VA
    While exploring Old Town Alexandria in Virginia, I stumbled upon Wilkis Street Tunnel, a fascinating historical site. Labeled as a haunted relic from the Civil War era, it was intriguingly nestled amidst a modern sprawl of houses with colorful windows. The directional lighting at the entrances cast an arcane glow on the rustic tunnel's interior roof, enhancing its mysterious allure. I'm grateful the haunted reputation led me to this site on my first solo walk as an amateur photographer in the DM

    Title or Location: Charlies Hut, Carneys Creek
    As anyone who chases milkyway photos will tell you, they take some careful planning and often a lack of sleep. Charlies Hut is in the Scenic Rim. It's about a 2hr drive from home, and with the help of Photopills, we could see that the moon would have set with the milkyway still visible at about 4am. So alarms were set for 1.30am, coffee was made and off we went. I use the intervalometer on my Canon 6D mark ii to shoot between 15-20 images of the sky. The lens I used was a Samyang 14mm, set

    Title or Location: Just north of Brechin on Hwy 169.
    May 10 the northern lights hit a G5 storm, a KP index of 9, the highest it will go, and the best storm we've seen in over 20 years. I drove my 10 year old son north to see them, this was a chance of a lifetime. I managed to get several amazing photos. Canon R6M2, RF10-20mm lens at 10mm, 30sec at f4, iso 1000, manual focusing. This was looking more north-west as most of the bright colours could be seen to the south, west and just north of us.

    Cremorne Point is always a favourite choice to capture the southerly sunsets with the Sydney Opera House and the city skyline in the frame. This isn't a long exposure shot but a motion blur added to the water in post production.

    Title or Location: Stub Stewart State Park Hilltop area
    This was the day of famous Northern Lights visible in most of the North America. Stubs Stewart is the most ideal dark area for star gazing so I reached there around 11pm. As expected, it was full of enthusiasts. The lights were predicted to be at peak between 10pm - 2am. Around 2pm, when we though the "show was over", the lights started getting incredibly bright, and that is when this picture was taken. Interestingly, the lights were bright in some regions and other regions were faded enough to
