“Street photography, also sometimes called candid photography, is photography conducted for art or enquiry that features unmediated chance encounters and random incidents within public places.”
You can develop your interest in photography further through a range of creative and practical photography courses at Banbury and Bicester College.
There are a limited number of FREE places available on this course, for those aged 19 and over (at the start of the course) and who either have a mental health condition or difficulty, are employed and earning an annual salary less than £17,004 per annum, in receipt of state benefit in your own name and unemployed or working and earning less than £338 per month (or £541 for household claims), are a single parent, or have a social or emotional difficulty.
Provided that you engage with the full course experience, you will benefit in several ways:
- different appreciation for photography generally
- deeper understanding of this particular genre
- practical skills to tackle a variety of projects
- number of images to add to your personal portfolio
- wider network of peers to support you in the future
Through a combination of exploration, practical assignments and field work, this short course will help you understand the key elements of street photography, develop skills to perform it well, build your confidence, and refine your personal style.
There are no formal assessments on this course.
Street Photography is for anyone interested in the genre, regardless of experience.
You will find you get more from the course if you have a digital camera with manual controls and you are already familiar with the essentials of using this.
Please bring your own camera.
There will be a field trip for this course on 20th March 2021.
