Beginner Street Photography Class

Beginner Street Photography Class

Saturday the 12th of February
Inner Harbor to Fed Hill - 10:30am - 3 Hours
Street Photography or Documentary Photography is one of the oldest and most important genres of photography. Learning how to capture the bustling life of a city around you can be difficult on your own, so join us in learning hands-on with an experienced street photographer. In this class, we will focus on tips for taking candid photos of other people, learning composition and lighting techniques, finding subjects, and capturing "decisive moments". Legendary photographer Joel Meyerowitz once said "If there are no photographs, then there is no history. I'm going to get in there. I'm going to make these pictures. We need a record."

Come along to our photo sessions to dust off your camera and get snap-happy with a professional photography instructor.

Brush up on your camera skills and learn new photography techniques whilst on a photo walk class with other local keen photographers!

We run two hour photography sessions based on a photography theme/technique/style and they take place in various locations around Baltimore.

New to photography? We also run a popular 3 hour Beginners Guide to Photography Class once a month. And once in a while we will run special niche 3 hour classes, for example, Astrophotography - so do subscribe to our newsletter to know when the next on is!

Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!

The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.

Join the Baltimore Photography Facebook Group here to share your photos after the session.

Our classes and photography sessions are limited to a max of 5 students - due to current COVID restrictions

We ask that everyone attending a meetup follows social distancing guidelines:

Stay home if you're sick.
Keep 6 feet away from others.
Don't make unnecessary physical contact with others. Avoid physical greetings, such as handshakes, hugs and kisses.
Wash your hands regularly with alcohol-based sanitiser.
Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Use a flexed elbow or a tissue.

It was great to get together to discuss portrait photography, ask questions and model for each other.

The workshop was perfect for someone like me. Self taught with limited knowledge of how to create good photos on manual mode.Emma described camera settings in a way more understandable to me. Already, I see an improvement in my photos and look forward to exploring more of these camera modes. In addition, I like the causual atmosphere of the workshop.
