About This Course

Welcome to this follow-up tutorial on street photography, which builds upon the knowledge and techniques covered in Kordas’s previous workshop. In this class, you will learn specific and more advanced techniques and tricks that he employs when working on the streets. By mastering these techniques, you will enhance your street photography skills and take your work to the next level.

Throughout the course, we will explore a range of topics, starting with a general introduction to street photography as a genre. From there, we will dive into the specific techniques that set street photography apart. These include panning, using a zoom lens, capturing a sequence of images, and effectively working a scene. By understanding and applying these techniques, you will be able to create more dynamic and compelling street photographs.

One of the key aspects we will address is how to overcome shyness, a common hurdle faced by street photographers. I will share practical tips and strategies that will help you feel more confident when photographing strangers in public spaces. Additionally, I will guide you on how to make the most of your time in the streets, ensuring that you are able to capture impactful moments and tell compelling visual stories.

We will also explore the concept of shooting a sequence, which involves capturing a series of images that collectively convey a narrative or capture the essence of a particular moment. This technique adds depth and richness to your photographs, allowing you to tell a more comprehensive story.

In addition, we will discuss why photographs don't always have to be tack sharp and explore the creative possibilities that come with introducing motion to still images. By embracing motion and experimenting with techniques such as panning, you can add a dynamic element to your photographs, evoking a sense of energy and movement.

Another important lesson I will share is that street photography is not solely reliant on wide-angle lenses. While wide-angle lenses are often favored for capturing the broader context of a scene, I will show you how different focal lengths can be used creatively to bring your unique vision to life.

To help you practice and apply the techniques covered in this tutorial, I have designed a class project for you. You are encouraged to shoot either or both of the following: a sequence of images or photos using the panning technique. By engaging in this project, you will have the opportunity to refine your skills and receive feedback from me, enabling you to further develop as a street photographer.

This tutorial equips you with the tools and knowledge to become a better photographer. Remember, street photography is a continuous journey of exploration and self-expression. Embrace the challenge, embrace your unique perspective, and enjoy the process of capturing the essence of the streets through your lens.

I look forward to seeing your work and providing feedback along the way. Let's embark on this creative journey together and elevate our street photography skills.

Luck Kordas
Luc, a highly versatile and prolific photographer, straddles the bustling streets of New York and the rich cultural landscapes of Europe to create his breathtaking body of work. His artistic journey has been deeply influenced by the timeless moments found in everyday life, translating the mundane into the extraordinary through the lens of his camera. His work, much like his life, is not tethered to a single place or theme but is rather an exploration of people, places, and moments. Drawing inspiration from both the chaotic charm of New York's streets and the eclectic tapestry of Europe, Luc creates stunning narratives with his photographs. Every frame he captures is a testament to his skill of finding beauty and intrigue in the simplest of moments. This ability to transform the ordinary into captivating visual stories sets Luc apart in the world of photography. While he is adept at shooting in both color and black and white, Luc often chooses monochrome for his documentary and street work. He sees black and white as a powerful tool for expression, stripping the subject down to its essence and focusing on the raw emotions and intricate details that color can sometimes mask. His black and white photography stands as an intimate exploration of moments, each frame brimming with emotion and a story waiting to be told. Luc's love for travel further enriches his work. He is constantly on the road, meeting new people, discovering new cultures, and capturing new landscapes through his lens. This constant movement has enabled Luc to blend his favorite genres seamlessly, creating a unique style that straddles the boundaries between documentary, portraiture, travel, and street photography. He views the world through a lens that blurs the line between these genres, finding stories in the overlap and contradictions between them. His portraits convey the depth and complexity of his subjects, while his travel and street photography is a rich tapestry of life as it unfolds in its raw, unfiltered glory. Luc's documentary work, on the other hand, presents a more purposeful narrative, capturing moments that offer insights into the human condition and our shared experiences. Luc's photography is not just about capturing images; it's about narrating stories and chronicling human experiences. His camera is his pen, and the world is his canvas. His work serves as an invitation to explore the world, celebrating the beauty of ordinary moments and the people who inhabit them. Luc believes that every photograph holds a story and every story deserves to be told. Each frame Luc captures is imbued with a sense of curiosity and respect for his subject, whether it's a candid moment on a bustling New York street or an intimate portrait set against the backdrop of a European landscape. This approach has earned him recognition and respect in the photography world, his work resonating with audiences worldwide.
