Photographing Strangers on the Street: Candid & Posed
mer. 9 janvier 2019 à 23:00
If you’re compelled to take people’s portraits on the street, but you don’t know how to go about it, or it intimidates you, or you just want to deepen your experience taking pictures of strangers, come to this event. Brooklyn-based street portrait photographer Amy Touchette discusses the various methodologies used by street photographers throughout the history of photography, practical aspects of photographing strangers, and the psychology behind getting the portrait you envision, including how and why to embrace fear, the role the mind-body connection plays, how to gain strangers’ trust (quickly), and how to recover when things take a turn for the worst.
