Workshop 5

PSNZ-WSS- Helen Westerbeke (1)

Wellington is a mecca for Street Photography with our awesome golden mile extending from Courtenay Place through to Lambton Quay, including the amazing Cuba Street area which is up there with any international city.

Designed for people who are interested in trying out street photography, the workshop is suitable for beginners through to advanced photographers. This workshop is about the 'art' of street photography and being comfortable creating great images with your camera.

The workshop will start on Friday night with a presentation on the concept and different techniques of Street Photography, where Helen will share tips and tricks that she has honed from lots of practice in the street.

Saturday will be spent out and about in the CBD putting into practice some of the principles learnt.

What you will learn:

  • To appreciate the aesthetics of street photography and understand the components of a great street image.
  • Understand some of the key legal and ethical aspects of street photography and to conquer your fear of photographing strangers.
  • Develop a street photographer's 'eye' and learn how to spot a photo opportunity in an everyday street scene.
  • Practice different types of street photography to discover your preferred style of shooting while becoming invisible to shoot your environment quietly and unobtrusively.

We want to blend in on the street, so please wear darker clothing and street suitable, ie: jeans and a top. You will not need anything other than one camera body, a wide angle lens & a water bottle.

Expect to be on your feet most of the day.
