Sky Arts Master of Photography Finalist Wayne Crichlow, Commercial Photographer Rob Irving and Award Winning Photographer Alecsandra Raluca Dragoi are excited to announce two dates for Soul Capture Collectives one day workshops; 30th March and 4th May 2019. Located in the creative and cosmopolitan area of East London, the event will be held at Autograph's purpose built Arts Centre in Shoreditch.
About the workshop
The Workshop is all about how to construct a Photographic Story, how to shoot and subsequently curate your work into coherent dialogue which expresses your subject material in the clearest, most interesting way possible. Drawing from the methodologies of eminent documentary photographers such as Eugene Smith, Gordon Parks and Mary Ellen Mark, we will explain quite what underpins a successful series of images.
During this workshop participants can improve their technique, gain confidence and receive tips and advice on all aspects of documentary street photography in a friendly and informal environment. You will learn a great deal about storytelling, the tricks to continuity, light and composition and the importance of connecting with the subject and the environment. The workshop will also cover the psychological and theoretical aspects of street photography.
How to apply
The price for the day will be *£149. Book now by sending us an email to email@example.com as spaces will be limited.
