Capture the charm of Porto with David Nightingale

Join David Nightingale for a 1½ day workshop in the UNESCO area of Porto.

“Shoot the Street” is a hands-on, 1½ day workshop designed to teach you a range of technical, creative and narrative skills that will enable you to produce visually compelling street images.

You will learn how to get the most from your camera in challenging lighting situations; how to shoot and engage with the people you meet; how to produce creative and visually compelling images; and how to shoot a sequence of images that, when combined, tell a coherent and visually striking story.

Those photographers who are already familiar with their cameras, and understand aperture, shutter, ISO and how these work together to create a correct exposure.
Photographers who already shoot in Aperture or Shutter Priority modes and can use the basic features on your digital camera confidently.
You have a basic understanding of the basic image adjustment features of Photoshop but are looking to consolidate your understanding, increase your repertoire of tools and learn some more creative techniques.
