Street Photography: Chasing Shadows, Capturing Humanity
February 23, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm HST
Sunday, February 23, 9am-5pm
Location: Eiben Hall, Room 110, Chaminade University
Instructors: Anthony Consillio and Ian Hunt
Humor, beauty, love and pain are hidden in plain sight as we travel through our daily lives. The street photographer uses light, shadow and people of the street to capture these moments. Moments that transcend race, nationality and culture. The resulting images are the gifts the street photographer gives to us all. Join Anthony and Ian as we walk the streets of Honolulu chasing shadows and interacting with strangers all with the understanding that what we are doing is justifiable, meaningful and truly important. The class will focus on traditional candid street photography, the use of shadows and silhouettes in composition, and street portraiture.
This consists of a one hour classroom lecture followed by several hours of walking the streets of Waikiki and having lunch. Participants then return to the classroom for a moderated photo critique.
Please bring your own camera and a USB card reader. You must have a basic understanding of how to use your camera. Please wear comfortable attire.
