Street photographers usually focus on capturing the city dwellers, street scenes, and structures of urban environments. But what happens when they venture outside the city? Is it possible to translate their unique urban style to a more suburban or even rural landscape? Well-known street photographer Steve Sweatpants will show you how to utilize your technical skills and artistic perspective wherever you are—whether it’s a frenetic metropolis or beautiful landscape.
In this class, you’ll learn how to:
Diversify your portfolio with a variety of geographies and landscapes.
Recognize the tone and color grading that make an impactful image.
Use a variety of post-processing techniques to enhance and perfect your photos.
Even if telling urban stories is your specialty, this course will help you discover new ways to incorporate your street style into imaginative and exciting imagery.

very inspiring and I love the attitude of Steve, very positive and uplifting.
I love Steve's attitude. He is inspirational as well as honest. I took his street photography class too and enjoyed learning about his process.
I enjoyed this course. For me, this was more of an inspirational course versus a technical course. Not that there's anything wrong with that. I enjoy taking both kinds. I took Steve's other course about street photography, and enjoyed the tips as well. Steve's photography is gorgeous, and you feel as if you're part of the scene in each one. His photos draw you in, which is one major reason I enrolled. I also appreciated that he discussed how photographers (especially in the street genre) can look for ways to get their work published.
