An introductory workshop

Held in conjunction with Passing Time
A solo exhibition by Lui Hock Seng
Mr Lui will be in attendance during the workshop. 

Street photography has a long and glorious tradition in the history of photography. The best street photographs give the viewer of feeling as if they are “amidst” the street scene in the photograph. Iconic images that have come to be viewed over the years as lucky photographs are often the result of an attentive eye and preparation.

In this short single-session workshop, participants will be introduced to street photography and given an overview of photography fundamentals before they embark on a guided shoot, led by instructor Deanna Ng and accompanied by 80-year-old self-taught photographer Mr Lui Hock Seng, along vibrant Waterloo Street. The workshop will conclude at Objectifs with a review session in which participants will share their images and learnings, and receive feedback and tips that can inform their future street photography endeavours.

No prior experience is needed for this workshop. All you need to bring is a camera you’re familiar with (preferably one with full manual function) and a keen eye on the streets!
