Street Photography Workshop at Chinese New Year Parade

On Sunday I held a street photography workshop during the Chinese New Year Parade festivities in Boston’s Chinatown.  Sixteen photographers  joined me for a day of  photo education and  image making. The Lion Dancers and festivities made provided a unique subject to photograph and plenty of excitement.

Street photography is one of the oldest traditions in photography.  As camera technology became smaller and more mobile (Moving from large format view cameras to smaller roll film cameras) photographers turned their cameras  to the realities and moments they observed around them.  The aim of this workshop was to immerse the participants into the urban environment and to  have them practice this type of on the fly documentary photography.  Despite the cold and crowds, they were able to make some remarkable images.

Check out the results on the group Flickr page.

This workshop is one of the program of digital photography workshops and photography tours that we offer at Test of Time Photography.  Our objective its to build photographer skills and creative abilities so our students can create the images they imagine.   This was a fun event and a great way to start of the year.
