What you'll do
We will have fun exploring authentic North Praga, learn basics about its iconic urban art, and architectural gems. The best view of Old Town is from here. First, we will meet at my place, Experient Explorer (FB + IG /experientexplorer) , to review basics about photography, such dynamic composition, and how to "see" moments and use light sources. After, we'll walk through my neighborhood like a local, and discover spaces, while focusing on how to do storytelling photography. If you want to learn more pro level techniques, using manual mode or other tools creatively, I'd be happy to share my knowledge. We can also discuss capturing candid portraits. What I want is you to enjoy yourself, and become more confident taking photos. You'll take home one-of-a-kind images from a one-of-a-kind type of neighborhood!!!!! Overall Goals: Make storytelling images, those which suggest your deeper feelings or ideas. Get better control of your camera. Be “in the present” when shooting something happening, at the moment. Develop ability of seeing beyond obvious and shoot moments that other people would pass by.
For 20+ years doing photography (cultures, travel, sports, events, portraits ..) because I love it, and reflects my strengths.

N. Praga, which survived WWII has a mix of old and new. We'll meet at my space for fundamentals. Then, we'll go on/off paths to photograph and see urban art projects .
