Night Street Photo
What’s the Story?
Not too far from the center of the Tokyo metropolis lies another city: Yokohama. It harbors the bustling streets and back-alleys of Yokohama Chinatown and the exuberant nightlife of Noge—these vivid locales offer no shortage of photo opportunities. Illuminated by lanterns and neon alike, after dark the streets take on a mysterious atmosphere.
What We’ll Shoot
We will focus on taking photographs that capture both the essence of the area and the locals within. You’ll be coached on how to use negative space to create minimalist images, how to add depth to your scenes, techniques to create abstract images, and how to use the natural geometry of the street. We will also cover how to identify photo-worthy scenes, so you can make the most of the time you have with your camera while exploring any city.
Where We’ll Explore
We’ll start by exploring the colorful streets of Yokohama Chinatown. We will make our way through the small alleys and side streets, where the photo opportunities are only rivaled by the food. Next, we’ll walk the lively streets of Noge, Yokohama’s famed yet quaint nightlife district. While lesser known to tourists the area is famous among locals for its variety of drinking establishments, entertainment, and red-light district.
