Street Portrait Photography Workshop London

This November saw another instalment of our ever popular Lifestyle Street Portraiture Photography Workshop. This fun and engaging photography course is always a huge success and this month’s was no exception. The workshop took place on 30th of November and was instructed by Photoion founder Ion Paciu.

Ion took his intimate group of 5 students out onto the streets of London to demonstrate the art of capturing the perfect urban shot. To begin with the students used each other as models, learning in situation the tips and tricks to selecting a location, posing their model and composing a photograph.

As the students’ confidence grew the Street Portrait Photography Workshop took an exciting turn as professional tutor and experienced photographer Ion began to stop interesting strangers on the street and demonstrate how to face an unknown subject, again making the most from the natural light, the urban surroundings, the positioning of the model and the functions of the digital camera.

The free form nature of the workshop allowed students to learn as they shot, experimenting with new skills as they learned them, and gain confidence from the fantastic results that they were seeing. As always the Photoion Photography School ethos of teaching in small groups paid dividends, allowing students to get the individual help and attention that they needed to get the most from their experience.

Once again the Street Portrait Photography Workshop London was a huge success, demonstrated wonderfully by the original and imaginative images in this blog, all of which were taken on the day. It is clear from these images that the students embraced not only the technical skills that they were taught on the day but also the ability to discover and visualise a creative shot, and have the strength and confidence to turn a complete stranger into a model.
