Join Greg Holden as we photograph through the streets of Fells Point. We’ll explore the historic waterfront area photographing interesting people, historic buildings, boats, abstracts in the water and other opportunities that we find in the early morning light.
We will work on
- Learning to see creatively by looking for interesting compositions in the shadows and textures of the old architecture
- Creating abstract images from any patterns and reflections that we find
- Learning how to approach people on the street for portraits
Gear Recommendations: Any camera with exposure controls will work fine. Bring any lenses in the range of 18-200mm range, a circular polarizing filter if you have one and a good pair of walking shoes. Although not required, feel free to bring a tripod if you want extra stability or creative long exposures.
Class Limit: 10
