Valérie Jardin: “Creative Vision Behind the Lens ~ An Educational Photo Walk on the streets of Valérie's Favorite Cities”

In this presentation, we will get an intimate insight into Valérie’s thought and creative process from visualization to capture as she takes you on a photo walk through a series of photographs. Why did she choose B&W over color? What aperture and why? What was the intent behind the choice of focal point? And much more.

This will be a special “best of” in this particular series created for our club and will touch on many teaching points in several of her favorite cities.

Valérie Jardin is a French photographer, currently residing in the United States. Valérie is known internationally through her workshops. When she is not teaching others the art of street photography and visual storytelling, Valérie is a prolific author, a speaker, and a podcast producer of the bi-weekly show “Hit the Streets with Valérie Jardin.” She is also an official Fujifilm X-Photographer.

Valérie is a gear minimalist. She believes in the power of limitations of one camera, one lens and making decisions before you press the shutter to get the shot in camera with as little post processing as possible. She lives and breathes in pixels.
