The Crash Street Class: A One-Day Adventure with Michelle Groskopf (In-Person Learning – One Session)
June 17, 2023
10:00 am - 6:00 pm
In-Person Learning Class
Join photographer Michelle Groskopf in a new one-day class designed to provide students with the basics of street photography in just eight hours. Taught by a different street photographer each season, the class is intended to teach students how to shoot candidly while learning some valuable technical information about photographing on the street. The day will be divided among lectures, a field session, and group critique.
The class begins with Michelle sharing why she loves street photography and what it takes to be good, quick, and committed. Topics covered include how to see light, how to find great backgrounds, how to capture the decisive moment, how and when to approach people, and how to shoot from the hip. Later in the afternoon, students will hit the streets of Los Angeles for a hands-on street photography practice. During the field session, Michelle will attempt to spend time with each student. The workshop concludes with a group critique and discussion of images taken during the day.
Feed your inner love of street photography in just one day. This fun, energetic workshop will inspire you to become the next Henri Cartier-Bresson!
This course is strictly limited to 12 students.
