Develop your photographic practice with Constantine Manos in an exclusive, 5-day workshop in Provincetown. The aim of the workshop is to learn precise techniques for photographing in the public domain, unobtrusively at close range, combining people, place, and moment in unique images. The elements of chance, time, place, and personal point of view play important roles in personal documentary photography.

Participants will be invited to an introductory meeting on the 17 June, to discuss the details of the workshop. The next day, after an introductory lecture and portfolio review of previous work, students will go onto the streets of Provincetown to search for magic moments. Their edits will be brought to class on a memory stick each morning for projection, review, and critique. This process will be repeated throughout the week.

Students will work with a digital camera and wide-angle lens in the 28–35mm range (full-frame equivalent) in color and b&w. Basic skills in camera technique required.
