Street photography has attracted great interest in recent years. Stepping out of the studio to capture candid, unposed moments in public places can result in powerful images. This course explores the distinct qualities that distinguish street photography. Photographer Daniel Kramer presents the history of the genre and also leads students on street photography walks in Houston. Past locations have included the Houston Rodeo, the Houston Ship Channel, a boxing gym and an Elvis-impersonator performance. Class sessions will alternate between on-location shooting throughout the city and in-class critiques.
Note: Participants should have completed The Basics of Photography, a similar introduction to photography course, or otherwise have familiarity with basic camera operation and photography principles. Participants must provide a camera and a signed release liability for this course. Participants are responsible for arranging their own transportation for the course field trips.
