WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

Montreal Street Photography Workshop with David Barbour August 5-8th, 2016

On Friday August 5th there will be a pre-departure class at SPAO from 6-9 pm where the instructor will highlight his experiences as a street photographer and detail how different photographs were produced. One will be introduced to the simplicity of using one lens, where pre-visualization of one's subject and their surroundings becomes a faster response in recognizing potential. A wide range of issues of photographing people in an uncontrolled environment will be discussed, including ethics and the law. Beyond photographing people on the street, photographing urban landscapes both in the day and night will be included in the class.

On Saturday August 6th, we will meet at 8 am and we will share cars and drive into Montreal and spend the entire day photographing in three different locations. Each student will look for that engaging moment of daily life but will also find interesting backgrounds where chosen compositional elements are all important to street portraits. We will meet for supper and share the stories of the day, before going out and completing urban night landscapes.

On Sunday, August 7th the day begins at 10 am and we will highlight urban landscape photography in the downtown core and then move on to Mont Royal park for the afternoon. At 4 pm we will return to Ottawa.

On Monday, August 8th from 6-9pm we will meet at SPAO from 6-9pm for an open critique of 15 photographs that each student has produced over the weekend. Here we will get very specific in recognizing the elements that make relevant street photographs work. In total, it will be a weekend exercise that will challenge participants to become more comfortable in recognizing the range of urban subjects that will produce great photographs, be it a personal geographic series or a travel assignment.

Transportation and parking costs will be shared. Students are responsible to find their own accommodation on Saturday night.
