About The Class
Capture street images that tell a story
When it comes to image composition, street photography poses unique challenges. There are usually several things going on at once, and you never know when something or somebody will jump into the frame when you least expect it. Renowned street photographer Dave Krugman will show you to take control of your images and create a well-constructed composition on the fly.
In this class, you’ll learn how to:
- Understand the basic rules of taking photos on the streets.
- Create balanced and well-proportioned compositions.
- Use objects and other elements from the streets to frame and communicate your story.
If you want to become a great street photographer, this class will help you embrace the unexpected and have fun with the unpredictable nature of this liberating art form.

I enjoyed the class. I'm trying to get better with my street photography skills, and this course gave me a few things to think about. I appreciate that Dave added before and after photos for his lessons.
First of all I love creativelive classes but this course title is completely misleading. It has very little to do with street photography. Shooting cities from a helicopter and using models looking into mirrors is absolutely no help whatsoever to help with composition for street photography. Disappointed.
