Jump start your creativity, resurface your enthusiasm and add diversity to your portfolio in a historic waterfront town.
Join Michael Koren for a morning street shoot; explore new shooting techniques, create dramatic images and experience street photography tips. We’ll work on creative compositions and exposures.
We’ll capture the charisma of historic Fells Point. From old tugs in the morning harbor to cobblestone streets where old trolley tracks remain. We’ll focus on capturing the many old storefronts, restaurants and charming century old buildings. We’ll be on the look out for co-operative folks on the street willing to be photographed and their pets as well.
Smartphone shooters are welcome! Michael will be happy to help you continue developing your Phone photography skills (assuming you have attended any of Michael’s SmartPhone classes).
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.
NOTE - Students will be required to follow COVID-19 Safety Practices, conduct a Self-Screening Health Assessment and sign a Waiver of Liability prior to attending a class. These items can be reviewed on the class registration page.
Class limit: 6-7

"Michael is fantastic. So articulate, instructive, and patient!! We all were saying at the end of the class how amazing the afternoon had been!"
"I was blown away by the class!!! Much more then I expected it to be! I can’t wait to take more! I loved the way he explained things and the order he did stuff in made lots of sense. You can tell he is a seasoned teacher, and an experienced photographer who also loves it! Can’t wait to squeeze more of his classes into my schedule...."
“I thought the class was a good mix of class time with history, concepts, guidance, how-to-approach and then practice time on the streets of DC. Michael provided very good direction as well as hands-on tutoring in the field. Very happy with the class.”
“I wanted to write to say how much I enjoyed the class. My first experience going around with a photographer seeing what catches his eye and it was so great you were pointing out pictures I could get. So relaxing!”
