Matt uses the Fuji XT10 and XPro1 with a 35mm or 16mm Prime lens.

You can bring any DSLR or mirrorless camera on this course; fixed lens compacts are also welcome.  If you are wondering what lenses to bring 50mm is ideal for full frame and 35mm film uses.   APSC size sensors 35mm is ideal or lenses around the normal focal length.

The day normally starts with a coffee introductions and a discussion about the day. We will touch on the ethics and law and how to deal with challenges in this area.

Next we will discuss camera set up for the day and the best set up for street photography with a practical demonstration of street camera technique.

Matt will also cover the skill in spotting a possible subject, what to look for in a great scene, how to blend in and be invisible, how to capture and subject without intrusion and how to carry out your photography in public places safely. He will also discuss how to develop confidence in shooting street photography; he will also cover body language and personal space.

We break for lunch.( NB: No food or drink is provided, but as this is a city centre location there is plenty available near by.)

We then go out on the streets to practice your new street techniques and try and find your street rhythm and look for some interesting characters or great light !
