Speaker: Caroline Preece – ‘Street Photography: How to feel the fear, do it anyway and get great images’
Caroline’s mother was a photographer and she grew up looking at the work of the greats such as Henri Cartier Bresson and Ansel Adams. However, she says that it is probably Michael Kenna that has had the greatest influence on her work – particularly his minimalism and simplicity.
Caroline’s main area of focus is street photography but I also take some seascapes and landscapes. She says, ‘I am drawn to human elements, chance occurrences, captured moments, emotions, stories (real and make believe), and the surreal’.
Caroline will be talking to us about her street photography and of this talk she says:
People have often said to me that they really like my street photography, but then the next words which follow are something along the lines of I am not brave enough to do it myself. What they don’t realise is that I am not brave and I still get butterflies…..and this is normal. Many top street photographers still have nerves.
In this talk I hope to take you on a journey which will look at what street photography is; what makes a great street image; some simple technical stuff on how to capture and produce your street images; and some thoughts on style. I will also talk about confidence and share techniques and tools which will help you manage your nerves and enable you to go out and get great street images.
