Street & Documentary Photography in Chester – A WelshotRewards Day

Probably one of the most scariest, yet satisfying photographic genres, street, documentary and reportage photography is, we think, one of the most rewarding.  Recording life as we see it now, through our cameras, will, in years to come, become an important study of social history. At this WelshotRewards Day event you will learn how to use your camera to record the street scenes of Chester.  Learning how the art of street, documentary and reportage photography will give you, the photographer, a wide variety of transferable skills that will become invaluable in many ways for your photography.  We guarantee that you will leave with not only images you can be proud to showcase in your portfolio but will more confidence than ever in using your camera in all manner of situations and environments.

From learning how to shoot from the hip, to capturing the scenes around you in an unobtrusive and inconspicuously manner you will be taken through every step of learning about street, documentary and reportage photography.  You will learn how to tell a story through your images, how to see and capture images in black and white and if you really want a challenge, and a different sort of photo, then we will even help you learn how to approach a stranger and take their portrait.
