Ian MacDonald Street Photography Workshops

I am very happy to announce the 2018 course offerings of my 2.5 day (20 hour) Vancouver Street Photography Workshop!  Courses are now scheduled for June 15th to 17th, and August 10th to 12th.

Do you have a new found interest in photographing the genre of street photography?  Are you a current street photographer looking to add new skills to your existing repertoire?   Do you love the idea of exploring a city and discovering new things about it?  If so, this is the workshop for you.

I find street photography to be an incredibly satisfying way to document the world around you, to create new art and to express your vision of the world.   Unlike portraiture or landscape photography that is often calculated and planned, street photography requires you to constantly observe, be fluid and be ready.

What does this mean for me?  It means that the world is a stage and that there is beauty on the streets waiting to be captured.  A street photographer knows how to become part of those streets, how to blend in and how to capture those rare but beautiful decisive moments that happen.  A street photographer understands that street photography is about people, not camera settings.  It is about moments, not perfect exposures.  A well crafted street photograph tells a story.  This hands on workshop is designed to help you find and tell your own stories through the medium of street photography.

Olaf Photo – Creative Photography on the Streets of Vancouver

Participants will be guided to tap into their own way of seeing using techniques based on a special photography-training program – Simplicity-in-Seeing – designed from the ground up by Olaf Sztaba. The objective of the program is to encourage participants to take risks, unleash their creative potential and learn how to use simple techniques to produce strong dramatic compositions.

We will be discussing and practicing five key concepts during this workshop:

SEEING THE IMAGE

CRAFTING THE IMAGE

EXECUTING THE IMAGE

POST-PROCESSING THE IMAGE

EVALUATING AND PRESENTING THE IMAGE

We will learn how to See the Image, Craft the Image and Execute the Image using techniques Olaf has developed over the years to journey past the snapshot. Every day includes a mix of presentations, discussions and street shooting in the most visually-striking Vancouver neighbourhoods. Olaf will demonstrate his original “keep it simple” processing techniques. You will receive notes and plenty of material to take home with you.

And will further define and explore Style:

11. What is Style
12. Artistic & Photographic Style
