Working The Streets: A Street Photography Primer (SAT & SUN)

Asim Rafiqui | Photography - Confident Beginner

Street photography can be the easiest, and yet also the most difficult and nerve-wrecking form of photography. Spend two days with Asim Rafiqui learning how to conduct yourself on the streets with a camera, and take your street photography to a new level. Asim will take students into the streets of Dubai and teach them the fundamentals of street work including how to deal with strangers, how to use zone focus, why a light meter is critical, framing and geometry, anticipating the light and more. Conducted entirely in the field, students will get a chance to immerse themselves into the street and food life of Dubai. The workshop is for beginners to intermediate photographers. All students are expected to know how to use their cameras. Only digital work will be discussed during the review sessions.
