Henri Cartier-Bresson, one of the great pioneering photographer said, “To take a photograph means to recognize, simultaneously and within a fraction of a second‚ both the fact itself and the rigorous organization of visually perceived forms that give it meaning. It is putting one‚ head, one‚ eye, and one‚ heart on the same axis.”

Documentary-style photography is done quickly, on the streets or in situations that are not controllable or perfectly static. It requires a high-level of technical knowledge about one’s camera and a willingness to adapt and react to changing circumstances. How does one learn to shoot under these variable conditions? That’s what this class will address, both in the field and in the classroom.

Designed as a beginning course to documentary photography, the class will encompass both shooting and viewing/editing. Kevin Weinstein will work with and guide students in actual shooting situations (to be determined), and then will have in-classroom Q&A discussions looking at the week’s results.

Topics include how to approach people, how to capture the essence of the subject’s world, the ethics and responsibilities of photographing people, and how to overcome very difficult situation, how to capture the right moments to tell a cohesive story, how to create compelling compositions, and which lenses to use to simplify backgrounds and/or to isolate your subject.

The class will include four classroom sessions for lecture, critique and discussion and three shooting sessions, locations and times TBD.
