What Came To Light: One Man and Two Workshops — Part I

Inspecting the Streets for Light with Olaf — Street

The street workshop with Olaf Stzaba in Paris was an amazing experience. It really stood out to me due to Olaf’s “Simplicity in Seeing” teaching program, and the detailed way in which he broke down how to see in photography, no easy task! As photographers, we all just want to go out and shoot, but the first few hours spent learning the program was so valuable. I wish I had taken better notes! This is not a workshop where we all go to a specific place to get an iconic photo of Paris, it was the exact opposite. The only thing Paris offered to our group was that amazing orange cast to the light and the way the light cast shadows off of its beautiful and interesting architecture. For 2 1/2 days, we were only looking for the light, everything else was secondary. In fact, I’m not sure if we walked a mile in the three days of the workshop because you could find interesting light everywhere!
