The “theater” of the street is exciting and unpredictable in Rome, where the ancient architecture forms a backdrop to contemporary mini-scenes, interactions and colors.
In this workshop, participants will learn the best strategies for capturing street life respectfully and unobtrusively, while learning new techniques in observation and fast captures.
This workshop focuses on the street life of Rome, from the old-timers, shopkeepers and artisans to modern Italians, couples and tourists. We cover some of the most popular piazzas (squares) in the Eternal City, where old and new meet in unusual and highly colorful ways.
