Brussels Country Show Slideshow

As part of my talk at the Brussels Street Photography Festival, I picked out a small selection of my country show photos. Here's the 17 I used to illustrate the series. Photos are taken at country shows around the southwest at England, such as the Dorset County Show and the Melplash Show. (I am currently working of a new edit of around 40 photos for this series.)

Clicking on the photos may produce a larger version or slideshow, depending on your set-up.

Alternatively, you can view this selection of 17 on my website here or view the 2015 edit of 41 here on my site. I am currently working on a new edit of around 40 photos.

Bath Photography Walk/Workshop with Paul Russell, Saturday 1 October

[EDIT: as of 6 September, five of the six places are filled; one place remains]

This is a practical introduction to street photography suitable for beginners/intermediates, given by well-known street photographer Paul Russell (www.paulrussell.info).

It takes the form of an informal walk and discussions around the compact, Georgian city of Bath Spa (with around 3.5 hours walking/shooting and 1.5 hours sitting/discussion).

We will be attempting observational, candid street photography in the tradition of Cartier-Bresson and Garry Winogrand. This will involve taking candid photos – not asking people for portraits. Participants should bring a digital camera so we can preview photos on the day.

Prior to the day, I will review your photos and give some advice on how I think your photography might be improved, and on the day we will try to achieve that.

Topics that will be covered include:

  • Spotting possible photo opportunities
  • How to take interesting photos including people, without using a telephoto
  • Methods for overcoming photographers block
  • The importance of having themes in mind when shooting
  • How to be discreet using body language/demeanour
  • Street photography camera techniques, e.g. zone focusing
  • Learning to anticipate and make the most of interesting situations.

The most interesting photos from the day will be displayed together online to provide a psychogeographic profile of Bath…

Date: Saturday 1 October 2016, 12 to 5 pm
A maximum of six participants. Price: £45

Contact paul@paulrussell.info if you have any questions or just book using debit or credit card with the button at the very bottom of this post.
