Odyssey: Photographing People Candidly

The best photos of people are, of course, often the most candid ones. This class is for all levels of photographers who desire to understand and use the techniques and the thinking that go into photographing people candidly, be it with family, friends, or strangers. Topics will include the various types of candid photography, how to find and create situations for candid photography, what makes subjects interesting, how to capture the moment, how and when to approach the subject, and how to define the photo story. The course includes analysis of technical questions such as lighting, composition, and use of lenses, and we will also discuss the matter of legal restrictions involved in photographing people and address some interesting social taboos. Students are encouraged to bring samples for review and to engage in constructive interactive discussions.
