Travel storytelling is about capturing a sense of place. Our 3-Day San Francisco workshop kicks off with a classroom lecture about approaches to travel photography storytelling, including a discussion of story angle/theme and mood, aesthetic style, lighting, composition and recommended camera settings. Comprised of on-location shoots and two in-class critiques, this immersive 3-day workshop is designed for photographers at beginning and intermediate levels who want to refine their storytelling voice while also receiving hands-on feedback in the field and in the classroom.
Why San Francisco? Full of whimsical hills, storybook architecture and colorful characters, San Francisco is a city for dreamers. Highly multicultural with a strong Asian influence, the city by the bay also serves up a decidedly high-tech vibe of the future, tempered by a lingering 1960s era free-spirited hippie sensibility.
For a premium experience, class size is limited to 5 people. Participants should have a DSLR camera.
