Street Photography – Manchester Christmas Markets – Mini Module with Masterclass

What Will Happen

What could be better than an afternoon of street photography, well, that would be an afternoon of street photography at the 2021 Manchester Christmas Markets with the gang from the Welshot Photographic Academy. Manchester’s Christmas Markets have long been a favourite of Team Welshot and delegates, as the perfect place to practice and perfect your street, documentary and reportage photography. From the thousands of visitors that visit to the beautiful festive stalls and chalets which are spread across the city centre, these Christmas Markets are sure to give the photographer a wide range of choice when it comes to capturing the festive spirit in camera.

The Street Photography – Manchester Christmas Market Mini Module with Masterclass will be about helping you to create long exposures in low-light conditions, specifically people but maybe some traffic trails too. We will also, if you need the inspiration or the motivation, provide you with a challenge to help you get your creativity flowing when it comes to street photography.

Soak up the atmosphere and follow the market trail as it winds through the city centre while you learn a thing or three about your camera, the art of street photography and make some great photos. Stopping for a mulled wine or hot chocolate will be a must too.

Whether you are a beginner to photography, a photographer who would like to try a new genre, learn an new technique or skill or a more advanced photographer who wants to build their image portfolio, you will be made welcome and we would love to help you get the best out of your camera.
