Ibarionex Perello, from his “Shadows” essay

For my Introduction to Street Photography Workshop in Los Angeles, I assigned all my students to go out on the 2nd day and shoot a consecutive street photography essay. They chose themes such as shadows, hands, tattoos, shadows, and even tourists.

If you would like more information about my upcoming workshops in Los Angeles on 8/28-8/29 or in San Francisco on 9/10-9/11 check out my workshops page or email me at erickimphotography@gmail.com

    Brilliant street photo essays from you participants, bro! It’s a good way to let participants practice the art of seeing from the ordinary.

  • Michael

    The tourist essay was the best, imho.

  • Jen Edwards

    Ah, I love both the shadow essays (I’m on a shadows + reflections kick right now, I think), but I especially love the birds-eye shot with the long shadows…. the gridded backdrop of the walkway, and the splash of red. Really great.

  • Siri_T

    I’m missing the story in the photo essays (sorry I’m just starting to do this too and I thought a photo essay had to tell a story). The photos seem unconnected from a story – more like a group of photos together. Can you explain more please – like what makes these an essay as opposed to a collection of photos.
