Travel and Street Photography Basics

How to overcome shyness when photographing people?
Why my landscape photos are pale and lifeless?
How do I select photos for Instagram or printed travel photo books?

Your instructor, pro-photographer and traveler with forty years of experience, will answer
those and other essential travel and street photography questions. You will also learn:
• how to set up your camera for travel photography
• how to use composition rules and lighting for gorgeous natural vistas or cityscapes
• how to capture the true emotion of people you will meet on your journey
We will analyze the work of masters of photography for inspiration and have a practical
photo walk in Chinatown— the travel destination for many tourists from all over the world.

portrait-photography-classesAt my photojournalist times in Poland I had a privilege and pleasure to photographed people like Pope John II, Mother Theresa, Lech Walesa, Ray Charles, Miles Davis and many others.

I love to travel, observe and socialize with people, listen to good music, and enjoy great movies. I enjoy to look at art of masters of painting and photography and always finding new inspirations. I work on ongoing photo project called "The Theatre of Daily Life" Recently I produced, designed and published three photo albums from the Philippines containing over 300 images. http://www.blurb.ca/b/8938896-the-philippines-natural-beauty
