This exciting workshop will be open to all avid photographers who want to hone their skills by photographing people and documenting everyday life in a content-rich environment. Workshop leader Scott Strazzante will focus on improving the content of your photographs rather than on the technical aspects of the photographic process. You’ll learn how to capture the whimsy and irony, beauty and excitement of everyday life in one of California’s most visually dynamic tourist destinations. Bring a camera or mobile phone that you are comfortable with, and that will allow you to focus one hundred percent on image making. At the end of the three-hour photo safari, participants will share images from the workshop and discuss their experience. Learn to “shoot from the hip,” tailor your experience to your own style, or try something completely new!
