Why have I listed this event?
I studied a photography certificate course, our tutor set an assignment for street photography on brick lane that surprisingly I enjoyed. Why did I enjoy it, well street photography is not a genre that I had explored previously and to be honest never really floated by boat. Undertaking that exercise and the surrounding research into street photographers such as Bruce Gilden, Henri Cartier-Bresson and Vivian Maier I expanded my knowledge of great photographers and a new (to me) genre of photography.
Fellow students of mine have a leaning towards this genre and have produced some great imagery. I find myself still uncomfortable with taking photographs of people in the street. My learning outcomes of this event:
- Become more confident in street photography
- Meet fellow photographers and network
- Gain experience in street photography guide by a professional photographer
