Urban Wildlife & Street Photography Workshop

 

A Mike’s Camera Exclusive Featuring Boulder’s own,

Charles Steinberg M.D.

 

An afternoon/evening photography workshop focused on learning the “how to” of Street Photography and capturing the colorful and unique scenes of life in this unique urban setting.

 

Whether you talk with the people you want to shoot or “sneak” the shot with a long-range lens, we’ll explore the variety of ways to capture unique everyday moments in time that tell a story. We’ll explore approaching subjects, composition, tips for capturing action and candid images, natural and available light photography, and tricks like painting with flash and effective use of blurring. The seminar will be held at Mike’s Camera in Boulder, followed by a walking tour and exploration of Downtown Boulder’s urban wildlife scene on the Pearl Street Mall and surrounding areas.

 

What You’ll Learn

The hands-on workshop will take place from late afternoon when the light can be “magic” through twilight and evening. You’ll experiment with shooting with long exposures with a tripod using only available light, to adding flash for added impact. You’ll work to determine how much can be done with available light versus when you might need flash and/or tripods. This is the ideal time to be creative with light, and Charles will show you the many ways how.

 

Throughout all the shooting Charles will be close by for field evaluation of your work and helpful suggestions. Especially since we will be ‘experimenting’ with available light, tripod shots, painting with flash and other tricks for low light photography, this support and the whole groups interactions will all be helpful.

  

Session 1: Shooting Workshop

This session will focus on setting goals for the shoot, a discussion on pre-visualization and instruction. Then walk to Boulder’s Pearl Street Mall. Using available light you’ll capture the local cast of characters to and find the shots that will tell your story. What touches your heart? When do you say “wow?” What striking image can you create that says “Boulder” loud and clear? It’s Saturday Night Live! And there’s so much is activity… between the buskers, the wealth of color, action and material. This kind of shooting is lots of fun.

 

Session 2: Review of Techniques & Image Critique

During the second session, as a group we will share in Charles’ unique “supportive” critique, where we learn to give and receive feedback in a positive constructive way. For some this will be the first time they have shared their work in public and Charles will do his best to make sure this is a positive experience for everyone.

 

Who Should Attend

This workshop is for any intermediate to advanced photographer who wants to develop his/her skill to navigate through an urban environment and negotiate with strangers, capture magical moments, and use many creative low light techniques. It will be great fun, taking the images and sharing them. It is a challenging assignment and out success will depend on each individual’s effort and our group’s ability to build support. Our track record with Charles in achieving this end this is excellent.

About your Instructor Charles Steinberg, M.D.

Charles is both a physician and a photographer. The last 8 years he has served in East Africa, training health care providers in AIDS treatment. This has given him intimate opportunities for photographing the realities of Ugandan life and AIDS in that setting. He also has served as the photographer for a poverty eradication project, BeadforLife and again his work covers their web pages with the real stories of those women in Uganda living on less than a dollar a day. Charles has studied photography for the last decade at places like Anderson Ranch, and teaches himself at Hollyhock in British Columbia.
