What to expect on the street photography workshop in Edinburgh
Edinburgh is a wonderful place to do a street photography workshop it's a diverse city with a multitude of fabulous locations in quite a small and concentrated area. The busy Princes Street bustles full of shoppers and tourists whereas The Royal Mile boasts many street performers and buskers. Narrow alleyways wind between striking buildings and lead to the markets, open parks and the fabulous train station. Street photography opportunities are endless.
August dates take place during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, a superb opportunity to capture some great street photography portraits. Shooting at the festival is a great introduction and confidence builder to anyone new to street photography, you will find loads of willing participants all eager to have their photos taken and happy to communicate with you which is vital to honing your skills.
