Brandon Stanton’s Humans of New York project is the inspiration for an exploration that offers the opportunity to become at ease photographing in public places and to gain effectiveness communicating the ideas behind your photos.

Begin with an outdoor photo shoot that involves photographing and chatting with fellow students, and then edit and upload the portraits and text to an online account. In the next session, learn how to best approach people on the street before photographing them and how to quickly compose a shot. Venture to the National Mall to take photographs and capture life stories to create the group’s own Humans of D.C. series.

Photography instructor Patricia Howard will lead this two-part course on consecutive Saturdays, with the second session held on June 8.
