Photow4: One-Day Workshop: The Decisive Moment: Street Photography around Boston’s Historic Haymarket is a fascinating workshop that explains the different artistic aspects and techniques of modern, urban photography. Led by instructor Georgie Friedman, from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, this skill-building workshop will illuminate the art of photography in new ways and give you strategies for photographing in the moment of lively public spaces.
Creating beautiful photographs in a hectic environment can seem intimidating at first, but this workshop will give you confidence you need to shoot like a pro. Centering on the activities around Boston’s Historic Haymarket, this photography class will introduce composition and technical methods for photographing dynamic moments in fast-paced places. Students and photographers will need a camera, preferably with manual settings so you can learn how to manipulate the lens.
