Great Street Photography Course

I had a great day of street photography with Lou. I learned lots of new ways of photographing people. I had always been challenged by photographing people in public but Lou made it look so easy. She showed me how to ask people for permission to take a portrait of them. I was surprised and pleased at how most people agree. This gave me lots of confidence and I found I could ask total strangers. I was also shown how to shoot from the hip which is fun, but difficult to get the hang of at first. Great course, great day. Thanks Lou I learned lots from you and this has given my street photography a huge boost in the right direction. Highly recomended.
