Street Photography Newtown

The Aperture Club runs Street Photography workshops in a variety of locations. One of our most popular is ‘The Poetic Witness’ which explores the unique and eclectic street life of Newtown and our Urban Observer which covers areas such as the CBD and Chinatown areas.

Street Photography allows us to capture people, cafes, vendors, street merchants, buskers, historic buildings, art installations and much more. The power of observation underpins the art of great street photography. Learning to ‘see’ interesting detail is a practiced skill and we introduce you to easy methodsthat will open your photographer’s eye and expose you to a world that is alive with detail.

Street Photography is a genre of photography that records everyday life in a public place. The very publicness of the setting enables the photographer to take candid pictures of strangers, often without their knowledge. Street photographers do not necessarily have a social purpose in mind, but they prefer to isolate and capture moments which might otherwise go unnoticed.

This is a great opportunity to develop your observational skills and that sixth sense..
