Free Photography Class Safari
Haven't shot in a while? Looking for some photographic camaraderie? Come and join us for this FREE two-hour Street Photography Safari and night shoot in Downtown Tampa. We will start with some basic reminders, reviewing photography principles including shutter speed, aperture, depth of field, and composition. We will then explore some of the core of downtown with the remaining sunlight. After sunset we will practice our night and low light photography skills on the beautifully lit bridges of downtown. Tampa is an awesome city with some remarkable modern and historic architecture, curious (and sometimes odd) public art, and a great place to practice street, urban, and night photography.
The class is open to everyone and is absolutely free. We will meet at a central location, review camera settings and equipment best used in this type of photography, and then shoot together. I will be available to work with you one-on-one for specific questions that you might have about your camera or other aspects of your photography. Please be advised that this is a walking tour. And while we won't be running a marathon, we will most likely walk for several blocks. Please be prepared with comfortable shoes, layered clothing, and a bottle of water if needed.
Please reconsider signing up for this free event if there is a possibility that you will not be able to attend. The class size is limited so if you take a spot and don't use it, someone got left out.
Camera and Lens (a wide-angle lens will works well, but any lens will do).
Sturdy Tripod (see my blog here for suggestions)

Tips about shooting in a group:
- If everyone is shooting the same subject and you want to get closer, say out loud "stepping in", get your picture, and then step out.
- Try not to block the sidewalk with tripods or groups of people. Street photography includes being respectful of others.
- Don't be afraid to help others or ask others questions. Some people have more experience than others.
- Also, don't be afraid to share contact information if you are comfortable with that. Creating a stronger photographic community is a great thing to do, and part of what this safari is all about.
