London Street Photography
There are many areas in the city of London well suited to street photography but probably none better than central London itself. We work a loop that may include Trafalgar Square, Westminster and the Embankment. London offers loads of opportunities to capture the busy people on the street. It is as lively and cosmopolitan as any major cultural city in the world. The iconic city architecture adds to those opportunities too. Planned for the beginning of spring, this photography walk's main aim is to capture the bustling activity on the streets. The day begins at 10.15am with an informal and short briefing before we take to the streets with our cameras. We aim to finish at approximately 4.30pm.

No rules, just opportunities!

The only remit with street photography is to travel light, unencumbered by large bags, tripods, or anything that would inhibit your ability to capture the moment. So much in this genre of photography relies on the photographer’s vision and ability to act 'on the move'; it also relies heavily on the people not necessarily being aware of your presence taking the photograph. Add to the mix a certain amount of serendipity (or luck) and you have the ingredients to totally immerse yourself in the moment. There are no rules when it comes to documenting the streets, just opportunities to capture the decisive moments.

Throughout the day you will be set a few street challenges for you individually. I will be on hand for advice, tips and will guide you to the places of interest and particularly where the potential hot spots are. During the day we will grab some lunch; you may prefer to bring your own which is fine too. But remember, don't burden yourself with too much baggage. If you are looking for more inspiration to shoot we will be covering various aspects of shooting during the day including: telling stories with our photographs; candid shooting; shooting themes; zonal focusing and overcoming the fears of photographing people without them knowing.

What camera for street photography?
If you have read my blog posts or website you will know I am a Fujifilm X shooter but you can attend this street shooting workshop with any camera! Although the smaller cameras are very adept tools for street photography, you can use any camera of your choice from smart phone cameras to DSLRs. Remember, there are no rules! It's a good thing to be familiar with your menu systems and camera generally. An understanding of your exposure methods would be good too, although the most important thing is to enjoy the street shooting experience. The group size will be small so there will be plenty of time for personal guidance and tips.
