Street Photography

Saturday 07 October
Minneapolis Sculpture Garden - 10am - 2 Hours
People, cafes, vendors, street merchants, buskers, historic buildings, art installations and much more. The power of observation underpins the art of great street photography. Learning to "see" interesting detail is a practised skill and we introduce you to easy methods that will open your photographer's eye and expose you to a world that is alive with detail. The most rewarding part of the class is learning how to approach interesting people and have them willingly pose for you. We will also go over settings, focusing techniques and lens choices common to street photography to help us capture those random chance encounters.

  • Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

    Learned quite a bit in a short time. The pace was good. As it turned out there were only two of us, so that made it really easy to get questions answered.
    I enjoyed meeting Alexis. He's a personable guy with some good insights to share and showed some flexibility in going with the flow--and engaging the participants, willing to answer questions. I picked up a few tips that I can incorporate in the near future, so in that regard the class was helpful. The smaller number of participants (two) was also beneficial. As a teacher, I'm always cognizant of having my learners staying engaged, on topic, productive--getting more bang for the buck during classroom engagements. Thus, I tend to naturally observe any classes I take with that background filter in mind.
    Location was good. instructor was knowledgeable and helpful

    Enjoyed learning the basics of photography and getting the chance to practice the concepts. The instructor was very knowledgeable.

    As I was looking up at the sky I noticed a Delta Airlines plane getting configured to land at MSP International Airport. I was tracking the plane thru the camera and got this shot as it came thru the trees.

    I took my son to see an old friend because he wanted to play with wire wool and try and get some "cool" pictures. We also took some led masks with us too. Was an eventful night and I'm sure somewhere along the line will see the rest of the results here

    Title or Location: Downtown Minneapolis
    I enjoy creating stories in my head for those I see throughout the day, almost hoping to live vicariously through them and trying to piece together what their to-do list is while trying to achieve my own.This photo was taken while driving through downtown Minneapolis, with the shutter rather high in order to create the silhouette that I have been chasing. Editing wise I made the photo black and white to highlight the contrast that is being viewed, I believe it helped focus on the shapes and

    I live near the water. As I worked in my garden, this eagle landed near the water's edge. It stayed long enough for me to grab my good old Cannon Rebel and I was able to capture several images with my 200mm lens. The bird seemed to have no fear of me. I moved slowly peacefully towards it and I ended up about 25' away. I did not want to scare it, so I only captured a few images. When I had finished, the bird remained here for quite some time. It was an amazing experience. I did crop the image to

    A peaceful photo shoot at a beautiful park, The Longfellow garden! I was shooting the flowers when I saw this worker bee ? collecting pollen And thought it would be a good practice shot! Used my preset flower on my camera for the photo! And manually adjusted to focus! I find peace in taking photo's! I look threw the camera and the world outside the lens disappears! I love photography and wish to perfect my skills!
