There are unique subjects to discover and secrets to unearth in every part of Paris, especially as we enjoy the warmth and welcoming weather of May. We will take Paris street photography to new heights by exploring the known and the unknown, from lively quartiers to tranquil gardens, from traditional Paris to the 21st century. Join us as we discover the real Paris via our own personal artistic perspective.
Each class will start in a café of a chosen quartier to discuss the photo lessons of the session. You then will explore the area to study the light, colors, characters, details, lines, forms, and shapes. You will receive hands-on practice with your camera and have your questions answered on the spot. At the end of each class, you will review the images from the previous week’s expedition to learn about your successes and challenges. At the end of this class, if you’re having a great time and want to continue to wander as a flâneur photographer, the class continues with three more sessions (Exploring Through the Lens (Part 2)
