AP Editor to give talk on street photography

April 13, 2012

Amateur Photographer (AP) Editor Damien Demolder will be giving a talk on street photography at Somerset House in London on 27 April.

Damien will also be hosting street photography workshops in association with Sony on 28 and 29 April, as part of World Photo London.

During the workshops Damien will walk participants through the streets around Somerset House ? helping them spot subjects and identify captivating street scenes using the Sony NEX-7 and a range of Sony lenses.

‘We’ll be concentrating on what makes a great street picture, and looking at the essential elements required for creating visually arresting images,’ Damien explained.

‘The groups will be small enough that everyone will get lots of attention, so I can help with technical or creative issues on the spot.

‘Afterwards we’ll have time to discuss our successes and how the less brilliant images could have been improved. They will be fun and informative mornings, and I’m really looking forward to them.’

AP readers can win the opportunity to attend one of the workshops.
