Street Photography Workshop with Cara Taylor
August 6 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
“To me, photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event as well as of a precise organization of forms which give that event its proper expression.” Henri Cartier-Bresson on “The Decisive Moment”
Photography, namely street photography rests on what the famed 20th century photographer, Henri Cartier-Bresson described as “the decisive moment;” when all things converge exactly right to create a photograph both rich in composition, and content. In this evening workshop participants will dive into the world of street photography, beginning with an overview of cameras for any beginning photographers, and a short discussion of the history of street photography. For the majority of the workshop however, participants will take to the streets of Charleston and practice making photographs with the help and critique of the instructor.
Students are required to bring their own digital camera, DSLR camera preferred, but point and shoot cameras would also work. Some experience taking photographs is recommended, but not required.
