Historic Fells Point

Historic Fells Point

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

"Greg was great covering the basics and answering our questions.  After just 20 minutes into the class, we were already testing out new knowledge and I was immediately amazed!"

"Greg's class clarified so many things for me. I found his talk and presentation quite inspiring and I'm excited to get out and practice what I learned."

“ Greg was extremely helpful in generating ideas for composition and explaining techniques to us. It benefited the overall experience by helping us create images that we might have otherwise missed. I definitely learned and improved my photography at this class with him."

"I enjoyed the class with Gleg. His expertise was well complimented by his superb classroom presentation. His enthusiasm is infectious. I especially liked the way he went round to each of us while we were on the street and tried to draw us out and give us hints and help. Well done to him!"
