Summer Weekend Intensive:
Street Photography in Detroit

Dates: TBD

This three-day workshop offers methods and practices to develop a personal approach in the genre of street photography, and designed with the intermediate- to advanced-level photographer in mind. With decades of experience photographing in the streets, in various corners of the globe, Don walks students through the process of seeing and capturing lyrical moments found in everyday life while exploring the energized and enigmatic city of Detroit.

The course content features short lectures and demonstrations, hands-on time producing photographs, and two critiques. Locations favor situations found in the depths of this historic city, such as around Grand Circus Park, the Theatre District, and Washington Boulevard. Regardless of whether participants prefer to render their images in color, or black and white, they can still learn to see and capture the dramatic, penetrating light modulated by skyscapers in the depths of the city, study the relationship of figure and ground, gesture, point and counter-point, in addition to several other compositional strategies.
