Capturing the Character of St. John’s

Join us in downtown St. John’s, NFLD for this fun, interactive, hands-on outdoor photography workshop that focuses on getting great results while photographing various subjects within the city. As we walk from location to location we’ll address tips & techniques you can apply when capturing St. John’s architecture, doing outdoor portraits, street photography, and more.


Camera 101 class or equivalent

Course Outline:

- Camera Orientation: Modes & features you’ll need for the day.

- Composition & Perspective: Starting in Bannerman Park, we’ll discuss and put into use concepts which contribute to effective composition. We’ll also explore the impact changing perspective can make on any subject.

- Architecture - Capturing Details and its Story: How to go beyond just taking that simple wide-angle photo of a place of interest. Learn how to approach, see and better capture the details and other important features to better capture its whole character and history.
St. John’s Basilica will be our case subject.

- On the Street - Capturing the Character of a Neighbourhood. Shapes, lines, patterns, colours and people - together they all form a location’s character. Walking through Jelly Bean Row, we’ll put concepts and camera together to capture this iconic neighbourhod of St. John’s. We’ll also explore techniques to produce more interesting portraits - both isolated and environmental.
