In this weekend workshop, photographers will be urged to approach their documentary projects to convey their immediate impressions and emotions. Explore San Francisco’s Chinatown with Michael Hintlian, a full-time documentary photographer. Workshop begins Friday evening with a group meeting and portfolio review, followed by a presentation of Michael’s work. On Saturday, take to the streets, camera in hand, capturing your view of Chinatown. On Sunday morning at 10:30am, everyone will gather at The Image Flow and work individually with Michael to complete the editing process before their critique. DSLR camera and laptop with Photoshop and/or Lightroom required. Please bring 20 prints of your own work for the first meeting on Friday evening for review.
