Street Photography

Sunday 23 June
Downtown Greensboro - 3pm - 2 Hours
Josh Brown
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.

    I enjoyed this class so much! David was patient, kind, funny, and dumbed it down without making you feel stupid. He was a wonderful instructor and I took away a lot from this class. I was apprehensive at first because I have never taken a class like this before but it was super beneficial and I would take another one. I will be looking for future classes to help my growth as a photographer. Thank you for offering.

    Great intro into portrait photography. All questions answered, terminology explained and concepts practiced in real time. Instructor was instrumental in portraying the model while at the same time helping us to visually see the ideas behind posing from the viewpoint of both model and photographer. Thanks Dave!

    As always with David Ross, I come away with far more than expected or anticipated. The posing, yes, useful. But metering on grass shadows being analogous to an 18% gray card, that's genius.

    Dave really demonstrated the basic skills in protraiture. The hardest part is learning how to position people. It's a lot harder then you would think, but the more you proactice and get used to it, the more natural it feels. Also learned on shooting people facing the sun vs. backlit by the sun, shooting in the shade, etc. I highly recommend this class!!

    I've taken four semesters of photography classes at GTCC (our local community college) and numerous sign-up equivalents to Click events, yet I honestly learned more useful knowledge in two hours with David Ross than all the latter. Nor is this hyperbole. I'm an engineer and an academic. The guy is that good, both at his profession, and especially as a teacher.

    Excellent! There were quite a few moments where I discovered things about flash photography that I'd previously had no idea that I could do with my flash. This was my second class and am already looking forward to the next one, which I'm already signed up for!

    I've had my DSLR for years but had never used it much. I would get too frustrated trying to figure out how to use it, and it felt like a waste of time fiddling with all the buttons and stuff. My images were almost never exposed right. David helped me learn what some of those 'gizmos' do, what they mean, etc. By the end of class, my images were much improved. I still need to practice more, which I'm looking forward to doing, but the class really helped a lot. I've already signed up for a couple more classes because I know I'll be well taught!

    My wife and I were having dinner at the Firefly Restaurant on top of the Hotel. I came back later and was allowed to go to the balcony just to take pictures. No matter what corner of the building I was, It was a great shot. It was hard to get a good photograph in focus that high on a building because the building keeps swaying back and forth.

    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.

    This photo is one I took in september 2023. On this night I captured quite a few different photos and perspectives of the milky way over and around the bridge. My goal on this evening was to take full advantage of the position of the milky way as there are very few opportunities that you can photograph the milky way positioned near the bridge during the year. I found this photo with other ones from that night I had not edited. Astro photography needs conditions to be right in relation to moon,
