 Introduction to Street Photography

 Oct 30, Nov 2, Nov 3, 201 Main EBR Library room 102 and Hammond Renaissance Festival (limited to 20 participants-MEMBERS ONLY)

Have you wanted to try your hand at Street Photography, but didn’t know how to start?    An event like the annual Renaissance Festival in Hammond is ideal for this; a bunch of people dressed up vying for attention! This workshop will be in 3 parts.  Part one is an instructional session in room 102 at the Main EBR library from 7-9 pm on Oct 30.  Our instructor, Darrell Miller, will offer instruction, tips and pointers for getting the most out of our workshop.  Part two will take place at the annual Renaissance Festival in Hammond on opening day, Nov 2.  We will meet at the gate for the opening ceremony at 9:30 am and shoot all morning.  We’ll break up into small groups and Darrell will divide his time between groups so that everyone gets the benefit of his expertise.  We’ll finish that Saturday with lunch.  Saturday night, your job is to look through your photographs and find a handful that you really like OR some that you would like input on for improvement.  Sunday, Nov 3, we will again meet at room 102 from 7-9 pm in the Main EBR library for a followup show-and-tell, constructive critique session. The instructor: I’m Darrell Miller, I’m a north Louisiana guy transplanted in South Louisiana. I grew up drawing  and painting, and found the love for photography while in law school. I’ve been shooting for about 10 yrs, 5 yrs professionally. My professional work is live music, festivals, dance, and burlesque. My real passion  in photography is capturing genuine people being themselves, and showing me who they are.>> This lends itself to street photography and street portraits. I love capturing the world around me with a camera  (or two). I love capturing people being people. Capturing the world as it is, capturing the character and finding beauty in everyone and everything. https://www.darrellmillerphotography.com/ Register Here or Cancel Here
