This six-month class is intended to teach students how to shoot candidly on the street, not only from practical experience, but also from studying historic and contemporary street photographers. We will meet once a month on Monday evenings, for lecture and critique, and once a month on Saturdays for a shooting session. (As a bonus, Julia also offers extra shooting dates each month, advocating the more you shoot, the better you will get.)

Topics covered in class include: what is good content and composition, how to capture a mood or a moment, and how to see light. Additional topics covered included the laws and ethics of shooting on the street, how to shoot candidly, how to capture the “decisive moment,” how to anticipate the future, how to approach people, how to shoot from the hip, equipment choices, lens selection, seeing in 3D, seeing in black & white, and how to be brave, but careful.

Many of the shooting sessions will take place downtown where Julia resides and spends most of her time shooting. We will shoot on Broadway, the Toy District, the Fashion District, the Flower District, Chinatown, Little Tokyo, the Arts District, on Olvera St., and in Union Station. If it rains, we’ll ride the Metro for a few hours. We’ll also shoot on the Venice Beach Boardwalk and on Hollywood Blvd.

We will set up a private Facebook page, so we can post our photos between monthly critiques to get feedback from each other.

The participants in this class will be expected to produce a book or slideshow of their work by the end of class.

If you enjoy “On the Streets in LA” with Julia Dean, the class can be taken more than once at a $100 discount. Julia creates new slide lectures and new lecture material for every class, specifically so that people can take “On the Streets” more than once and continue to gain new information and ideas.

LACP offers two wonderful opportunities each year to display street photography – 1) a “Street Shooting in Los Angeles” exhibition (usually programmed in summer) by participants in On the Streets in LA and Working the Streets classes, as well as photographers in The Los Angeles Street Collectivel, and 2) a juried “Street Shooting Around the World” exhibition (usually programmed in February).

Students choosing to take part in the “Street Shooting in Los Angeles” exhibition will be asked to pay $25 each to help cover the expenses. This fee can be paid closer to the start of the exhibition.
