Selecting a different San Francisco photogenic locale for each workshop, an experienced, passionate pro-photographer, with teaching experience, will rendezvous with max 12 participants to demonstrate & supervise lessons on mechanics of digital cameras, as well as composition strategies, allowing each participant to turn snap shots into compelling images. There are long existing, easy to learn, composition techniques to capture a scene, person or activity. Each participant tries each technique while the instructor observes and coaches. Some composition terms, among several others which will be taught, include Leading Lines, Rule of Thirds, Panning & Layering. Once learned the composition tricks apply to any future photo activity whether a family get together, a neighborhood stroll or a once-in-a lifetime travel experience. Every workshop rendezvous is in a different scenic locale to vary photo themes from street portraiture, landscapes, interior lighting, architecture, action, etc.

There are charming, intense and whimsical street portraits to be had in Noe Valley no matter which direction you point your lens. You’ll find dog walkers, skateboarders, couples hand in hand and the other players of your garden variety revitalized community to tell a universal story for the entertainment and enlightenment of those who view our images, yourself included. In addition to sidewalk outdoor cafe patrons to photograph, there are the rows and rows of Victorian and Edwardian houses, 4th highest number of them in San Francisco, to add color, place and time to your visual narrative.

And every Saturday, from 8AM to 1PM is the Noe Valley Farmer’s Market when vendors come in and set up stands to sell produce, fruits, hand made items and other wares that offer environmental portrait opportunities and close up abstractions of colorful fruits and vegetables.

Perhaps the most compelling aspect of the Noe Valley shooting locale is the vibrant wall murals, photo ops in and of themselves, but also excellent backdrops for portraiture. Your instructor is an expert on engaging passerby’s to pose, and can help you learn the same friendly approach to getting cooperation amongst strangers, or work with a workshop co-participant as your model, teacher included. Maybe a group shot. You might even be the subject for others! Besides people to accessorize these murals, there are the regularly appearing birds in flight, cars and bicyclists driving by to help you learn the art of panning, creating a sense of action within your photograph. Or for study in contrasting color layouts, keep an eye out for the lone fire hydrant, street sign, mail box or other stationary item within proximity of the mural that serve to highlight the art work and create a dynamic visual impact of your images.

Meet at the Star Bucks located at 3995 24th StreetSan Francisco, CA 94114.
