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: how to see light, how to find great backgrounds, 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, how to tell a story with a single image, 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 for all three street shooting classes, so we can post our photos between monthly critiques to get instant 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.

LACP offers two wonderful opportunities each year to display street photography – 1) a “Street Shooting in Los Angeles” exhibition by participants in Street Shooting 1, Street Shooting 2, and The LA Street Shooters’ Collective classes (usually programmed in the summer), and 2) a “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 $20 each to help cover the expenses. This fee can be paid closer to the start of the exhibition.
