Street Photography

Saturday 15 June
W Vine St - 10am - 2 Hours
Phillip Lacy
People, cafes, vendors, street merchants, buskers, historic buildings, art installations and much more. The power of observation underpins the art of great street photography. Learning to "see" interesting detail is a practised skill and we introduce you to easy methods that will open your photographer's eye and expose you to a world that is alive with detail. The most rewarding part of the class is learning how to approach interesting people and have them willingly pose for you.

We will also go over settings, focusing techniques and lens choices common to street photography to help us capture those random chance encounters.

    Bobbi-Lee Peoples
    I've always followed my heart and it's gotten me this far. I'm highly intuitive and draw inspiration from the world around me. I am involved in a variety of projects, all of which have somehow become a part of my ongoing creative life journey.
    I love being a photographer because it allows me to capture the solace of the Ether, the harmonious balance of movement and stillness in a composed frame. Being a photographer allows me to show the world stillness in the fast movement of every day life through my lens.
    As a photographer, I like to think of myself as a chaser of the sun. I'm always looking up into the sky looking for light, whether that is the sun, the moon, and the stars. Photography allows me to be closer to what has been considered the heavens.

    For 2 weeks every winter Sydney is lit up with amazing colours and beams of light over the Harbour Bridge, Opera House, and various buildings throughout the city. I captured this photo of the Opera House from across the water at the Overseas Passenger Terminal. I used a slow shutter speed (of 1 sec) to capture light trails from the passing water craft, and I held my iPhone up against my lens to create an artificial reflection on the water.Canon R6ii, RF 70-200mm f2.8 (@ 70mm), 1s, iso 200.
