ART OF SEEING
(A one day street photography workshop series with Jojie Alcantara)
“Street photography is the most challenging form of discipline because it is spontaneous, unpredictable, and a reflection of lifestyle and culture, good and bad. The documentation of candid moments trains you to be a keen observer in life, sheds your inhibitions, teaches you to socialize better in your environment, and gives you faster motor reflexes. If practiced well, it turns your everyday snapshots into memorable art.
In 1997, street photography in Indonesia started my journey to photojournalism, eventually pushing me to explore portrait, landscape and travel which is part of the field I specialize in. Come take a walk with me for one day, as I share how I observe, compose and capture scenes around me. It will provide a fun and helpful training ground for you too.” ~ Jojie A.
