Street Photography

Street Photography

Saturday 17 June
Jean-Talon Market - 1pm - 2 Hours
People, cafes, vendors, street merchants, buskers, historic buildings, art installations and much more. The power of observation underpins the art of great street photography. Learning to "see" interesting detail is a practised skill and we introduce you to easy methods that will open your photographer's eye and expose you to a world that is alive with detail. The most rewarding part of the class is learning how to approach interesting people and have them willingly pose for you. We will also go over settings, focusing techniques and lens choices common to street photography to help us capture those random chance encounters.

Industrial Landscape Photography

Industrial Landscape Photography

Saturday 29 July
Montreal Science Centre - 1pm - 2 Hours
We will be starting with an overview of landscape photography technique, how to decide what to take a picture of and how to compose shots, we will then move into settings and more technical challenges to get an idea of when the camera behaves best for landscapes. You can use buildings and other man-made structures compositionally in the same way other landscape photographers use trees and rolling hills. Wind farms, harbours, cement works, power stations, quarries, pylons and building sites are just a few of the industrial landscapes you can photograph.

    Learned a few tips on the use of manual mode to create special effects. Not sure all the course objectives were met regarding composition, focus and color. Joshua did a great job promoting a cordial environment with everyone and answered all questions with great knowledge and enthusiasm.

    I really enjoyed the beginner photography class with Josh. He engaged in our learning goals, and shared about his photography-related journey and interests. He gave great analogies and demonstrations to help us grasp the technical components. It was a lot of fun! I look forward to attending another of his classes!

    I was a bit nervous and shy, I was also feeling insecure with my point and go camera. The facilitator made me feel welcomed and secure with my camera, I thoroughly enjoyed the event. My goal was to get out of my comfort zone and enjoy a hobby that I have enjoyed all my life, Thank you Joshua!

    INSTRUCTORS
    Joshua Renaud
    Joshua has been photographing for 10 years. He fell in love with photography at university, so much so that he decided to get a degree in photo!

    He absolutely loves helping people how to use their cameras more effectively and helping them develop a better eye so as to take better photos. He personally loves taking pictures of architecture, trees, and sublime sunlight. Josh is currently exploring themes of memory, nostalgia, home, inside vs. outside space, and time.
