This masterclass will explain how to create, and be inspired by, street photography. Using the Nikon School, in central London, as a base, topics will include how to best use the exposure triangle, how to visualise images before you take them and how to pick composition guidelines to suit specific locations. There’ll also be expert tips on how to optimise settings and lens combinations to make the most of photographic opportunities on location.
You’ll then put the theory into practice on location in Soho and the West End before reviewing your images back at the Nikon School. The National Geographic Traveller art editor, along with the rest of design team, will be on hand for a Q&A session, where you’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at how photographs are selected for the magazine.
Topics covered will include:
- Using the exposure triangle to best effect
- Evaluating your surroundings
- Visualising images
- Composition guidelines
- Optimal camera modes and settings
The masterclass is aimed at those with at least a rudimentary understanding of ISO, aperture and shutter speed settings.
