What you'll do
You can think of me as your friend in Barcelona who will help you improve your photography skills, show some of the most photogenic places and have your portrait taken. We will practice simple techniques which help in developing an ability of seeing beyond the obvious, and creating better photos. Such as: Street photography: how to * get better control of your camera * create photos that look different from photos created by other people * develop ability of seeing beyond the obvious * build your composition to make photos look more attractive * approach location like a pro * shoot in different lighting conditions * take photos of strangers * create photos that do not look "typical" * maintain our confidence when approaching / shooting people Portrait photography: * Photo sparring. Learn how to talk with a person you photograph in such a way that creates emotions. As a bonus, during the experience I will take a few photos of you in action (if you will be comfortable with your photos being taken:). I will send these photos to you, as a memory of a good time you had. I will do my best to customise it based on your experience, and what you would like to focus on.
