Join award-winning photographer Steve Simon for an unforgettable workshop of living and breathing photography in beautiful Heidelberg. He will help you find your own unique vision and style through assignments created to give you direction, getting you past photographic fears and cliches. Steve will be teaching new and powerful street photography techniques guaranteed to push you from your comfort zone to new heights in your work. Steve will share his street-shooting philosophies gleaned from a lifetime of wandering urban places with his camera. You will learn to capture lyrical, poetic and decisive moments that communicate the energy of the streets. 


But mostly we will be shooting the theatre that is the street; sometimes together, often on our own, following the light of the street. All levels of photographic experience can benefit from this workshop. You’ll learn about the “rhythm of place” and discuss the laws and ethics of street photography, as well as dealing with difficult situations that might pop up. We will make limitations, inspiration for problem solving and making great images. 


We will define a strategy for capturing the rich daily life of people on the street and overcoming fears and shyness, approaching strangers, framing, juxtaposition and layering your compositions, letting the image come to you and whether color or black and white best suits your vision.  We also will explore the art of the Street Portrait and capturing Urban Landscapes. 



We will talk street-tech and Steve will give you his minimalist view on gear along with a simplified shooting process to maximizing your response time to capture decisive moments. We will also talk lenses, auto focus, zone focusing, shooting from the hip, using live view, flash and a host of other tips, tricks, distractions and ideas that will improve your work dramatically. It’s a street photography workshop but the lessons learned will benefit you in all genres of image-making.
