 How many times have you either traveled to a new and exciting place, or even walked down the street in your own hometown, and come across someone who would make for a perfect subject? The only problem: you lack the confidence or know-how to turn that opportunity into a stunning portrait. Derek Fahsbender has never met a stranger he didn’t find completely fascinating, and he has dedicated much of his time behind the camera to documenting those he meets. In Derek’s return to the Event Space, he will guide you through “The Art of the Street Portrait.” From building the confidence to approach complete strangers, to creating an image that will forever tell the story of the moment, this class will give you the tools needed to stop watching people and start capturing people.
