On January 14-15th, we’re throwing an exclusive two-day intensive photography workshop in Los Angeles. You’ll learn a whole lot about approaching subjects, honing your reflexes, etc. You’ll go from Hollywood to Downtown LA with the Phoblographer’s very own Daniel Schaefer.
Plus, it’s pretty affordable and you can sign up by clicking this link.
Los Angeles is a city ripe with narrative imagery. With half of the crowds around you toting a screenplay in their backpack, and the other half narrating the story of their life in their mind as they weave across the webbed streets of the city. LA is a photographer’s paradise.
This special workshop by The Phoblographer encompasses two days of intensive street photography technique, covering everything from quickening your reflexes to approaching subjects one on one, with time set aside within the session to discuss lens choice, low light mastery, and how to lace an image with inherent narrative, giving your pictures a whole new cinematic life.
This workshop is being taught by the Phoblographer’s very own Daniel Schaefer.
Day One – Hollywood.
Playing on the iconic boulevard of the stars, highlighting the grit and grime that balances against the glamour. With subjects streaming onto the boulevard from all across the world, this tourist trap turns into one of the best locations for a street photographer to find fascinating faces in the crowd. Concentrating on increasing your speed and accuracy as a photographer pacing the concrete, camera in hand. As the sun sets, we switch to hunting neon, finding the energetic images that the boulevard offers after dark.
Day Two – Metro/DTLA
Diving into the dense iron tangle of Downtown Los Angeles, we start the day at the Hollywood meet point, and take the Red line subway down to Pershing Square. From there, participants will be guided through some of Los Angeles’s best photographic hotspots, iconic locations dripping with narrative, and a menagerie of subjects that beat through the liveliest sections of the city. Concentrating on street portraiture, approaching and directing subjects who only moments before were just fascinating strangers. Again as we lose light and gain the flickering neon of DTLA, we play in the shadows and find the noir nature that just drips across the city, exploring little Tokyo and the surrounding area.
$200 for the two day intensive. Attendance buys you membership to the private FrameWorks workshop alumni network, connecting you to other talented enthusiasts across the country.
Highlights of the work made by Alumni during the workshop will be featured on ThePhoblographer.com
