  1. If you want to learn about street photography, you need to get this class! Not only is Judith one of the best street photographers out there, her teaching style is so much fun and engaging! I absolutely loved this class. Thank you, Judith.

    1. Aw, thanks so much for the glowing feedback, Sue. It was a joy to see photographers like you who are already strong in street photography on the class list. I’m so glad you enjoyed the course and hope it inspired you to keep getting out there to hunt for everyday magic.

  2. Shameless confession here…I pretty much binged this course! I have admired Judith Krasinski’s work for some time now, so when I saw she had written a street photography course I had to take it! I have been doing street photography for several years, but I haven’t done much since 2020 due to the pandemic. Working through Judith’s class definitely reignited my interested in getting back on the streets with my camera. This course is so well written and structured. Each page and every video was packed with valuable information that anyone who has an interest in street photography would find useful. I loved Judith’s approachable style and witty humor, which made me wish I could be out on the streets of Philadelphia right alongside her. Additionally Judith’s photos are super inspiring, and the companion PDF containing 40 exercises to elevate your street photography, has given me so many new ideas. Whether you are a street photographer newbie or comfortable hitting the streets with your camera, you will not be disappointed with this course.

    1. Wow, Melissa! Thank you so much for the generous feedback. It makes me so happy to hear that the course re-lit the fire in you to get out on the streets and shoot. I’m excited to see where you’re going to go with the experiences you’ve soaked up over the last few years and the knowledge you’ve picked up along the way. Something tells me it’s going to be pretty awesome.

    I was so excited when I saw this course was coming out, I know that Judith is an absolute master at this and she does not disappoint. I am so curious about streetphotography so this was just what I needed. I loved watching Judiths videos and seeing the world through her eyes. She takes us through so many scenes and talks about things that can be awkward and a little scary with streetphotos, like photographing strangers. I also found the 40 exercises superuseful and have been trying some of them out. I highly recommend this course, it has helped me so much in taking the first steps in streetphotography.

    1. Hi Jenny – Thank you so much for sharing your feedback! I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed the course and feel more equipped to get out there and shoot. I can’t wait to see how you’ll bring your beautiful golden, moody style to street photography. Those are two of my favorite elements combined with my favorite genre, so I am beyond excited to see what magic you’ll make.

  4. Judith is the MASTER of street photography! Her course is so inspiring; it’s incredibly well-organized and thought out. Judith is a fantastic teacher, breaking down all the elements of street photography and how to approach it as a beginner to this genre of photography. I am super inspired to pick up my camera for a photo walk!

  5. I have always been intrigued by street photography and was excited to take this course by Judith Krasinsiki “The Foundations of Street Photography”. Wow, I am always blown away by the amount of materials in these courses at Click Photo School! Judith’s course is very informative and has me looking for interesting signs, shapes and colors wherever I am. Besides the ebook of course materials from her expert experience, the prompts that come in the downloadable “40 Exercises” keep you from being overwhelmed by shooting choices and focus on some simple exercises. I could listen to her shooting and editing videos all day, she makes her explanations easy to understand and the videos have a fun, upbeat vibe. I am disappointed I don’t live near a large city to experiment more, but I took this course because we are taking a cruise this year and I hope to enhance my travel photography with her suggestions for street photography. I feel the material will help me capture more meaningful images in my small rural town also. I would recommend her course to everyone, the material has you building more complex images based on composition, color, and waiting for the right moment to press that shutter!

    1. Hi Mary Anne – I am so, so excited to hear that you not only enjoyed the course, but are able to transfer the skills you gain from street photography into every aspect of your photography. There really is nothing like shooting street to teach you to look hard at the world around you and to notice those easily overlooked, yet compelling moments. With your new superpower of sight, I hope you capture some amazing images both on your cruise and everywhere else you go.

  6. I was so happy to Judith create a Street Photography course. I have admired her work for so long. The class materials were so organized. I really valued her videos and seeing her process. I appreciated her humor and patience on the street in the videos as well. I loved seeing the different captures from others in class and especially appreciated all of Judith’s quick feedback and participation with all of us taking the course.

    1. It was wonderful to have you as part of the class, Amy. I appreciated your questions and photo shares and am really glad to hear you found the course helpful. I’m so glad you’ve taken the dive into street photography!

  7. Tracey Richvalsky

    I’m a hobbyist with older kids, and I was so excited to see Judith’s course listed. It did not disappoint! The material is organized and presented so well and is very thorough. You get to see Judith’s whole process in the videos where you follow along on her photo walks. She explains what she is looking for and why both in the videos and the PDF. The list of exercises is so helpful when going out on your own too. I thoroughly enjoyed this course and would highly recommend it!

    1. Thank you so much for your feedback. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed having you in the class and have appreciated all the work you’ve shared. I’m thrilled to see you stepping out of your comfort zone and really going after your vision. I’m excited for you!

  8. This is such a good course! I’ve been looking for a great street photography course as it’s an area that I’m really drawn to (particularly as a primarily documentary photographer whose kids are getting older — I know I need to find an outlet for myself as my kids will be less inclined to indulge me). This class is SO GOOD. It’s not repetitive of other information that’s out there, the PDF is chock full of information and the shooting videos are so great. So informative and a ton of fun. I buy a LOT of courses and this has been one of my favorites.

    1. I’m so happy to hear that you’ve really enjoyed the course. Thank you so much for the generous words. Street photography is indeed such a fabulous “what’s next.” It’s so versatile in its location options and so accommodating of the photographer’s individual style. I’m thrilled that you’re diving into it!

  9. I cannot say enough about this course and how much I loved it. I have been shooting street photography for fun and to challenge myself for years. It is one of the photography genres that people tend to shy away from or think of as shooting “from the hip”. Judith made this class so much fun and I LOVED her videos. She strapped on a Go Pro so we could see what she was seeing as she walked and then after we could see the photos she captured along with how she edited a few of them. Her narration of the walks though was key. She discussed what she was looking for, what captured her eye and how she approached what might be considered a street portrait instead of a strict street photo. She made it fun and inspired me to break out of some of my comfort zones when shooting street photography. Her course centers on street photography, but the concepts will make you a better photographer in any genre. Judith makes street photography a lesson for improving all of your photography. It takes away the pressure of a photo shoot or trying to capture that great picture of your kids, so that you can work on just building the muscle memory that you need to find a great shot in any situation. Judith turns it into a lesson where you get to play with the skills you have while looking for new techniques that you want to try or want to practice. I so enjoyed this class, the videos, the lessons and seeing all of Judith’s amazing captures!

    1. Thank you so much for your feedback, Christine! I’m happy to hear that you found the materials helpful and felt both challenged and equipped to step outside of your comfort zone. It’s so true that the “eye” you develop while shooting street photography will only make you a stronger photographer in any genre you shoot. I’m excited for where you’re headed with your photography!

    A great course with a lot of great content! Judith shares a lot of tips and inspiration on how to get started and how to get great photos- what works and what doesn’t. Going along on her photo walks is amazing as she shows us not only when things work out, but that a lot of the times, things don’t quite go as planned. The PDFs have so many beautiful images along with great instructions and prompts/exercises. It’s definitely worth the cost of the class, even if “street” isn’t quite your genre.

    1. I’m really happy to hear that you found the PDF and the videos so helpful. While I’d love to show you only perfect scenarios with perfect pictures, sometimes we learn best when we see what *doesn’t* work! Thanks so much for your feedback!

  11. I was so excited when I heard Judith was going to launch a class and couldn’t wait to get stuck into this as I’ve admired her street photography work for years. Her eye for colours and lines and waiting for the perfect moment in a composition just blows me away, and this attention to detail crosses over into the way she’s shared so much depth is this class. She really doesn’t hold back on sharing her knowledge, and her humour, in the way she documents the streets around her. I loved the calming way she talks through different scenarious, and how when you watch the videos you get a front row view to how she deals with both obstacles and opportunities that come across her path when she’s out and about. The editing videos are fabulous but my absolute favourite thing is the PDF with so many different elements to think about – which she then puts into exercises for you to work your way through one by one so that you hone those skills she’s talked about. It’s a truly comprehensive guide and a bargain to accompany you on adventures (top tip, print out the checklist and keep it on your phone for when you’re out and about!). Thank you for being so generous with your experience and wonderful photography skills Judith.

    1. Kirsty – I’m so happy to hear that you enjoyed the course and found the videos, PDFs, and shooting exercises so helpful. That’s so heartwarming. I can’t wait to see where you go next with your street photography!

  12. This course is incredibly thorough and well-planned. Judith takes you through a few busy urban neighborhoods in Philadelphia, finding visual treats along the way. She explains what she is searching for and why she might linger in one place vs going after an interesting subject. She inserts humor and general cleverness throughout the videos and written pdf, which to me, makes the intimidating task of wandering busy, unfamiliar streets alone seem like fun!

  13. I was counting down days for this course to release and I just finished reading the eBook and watching the shooting videos, they were totally worth the wait. She breaks down all the different elements that go into a good street photo and lists out the right way to do it and also teaches us ways where we can break the rules to create really strong photos. Unlike other genres of photography, I feel there is an element of mystery when it comes to street photography, because we are photographing strangers, we often have several questions as to how, when, where, what if? Judith answers every single one of those questions and gives us the confidence that we need to get out there in the streets and start photographing strangers. I have 2 favourite parts in this course, one is her 40 exercises. I can’t love it more. I am sure going to print it out and take it with me on my city photo walk outing. It is priceless and one of the best tools to use when we are out there walking with camera, feeling overwhelmed not knowing where to start. The other favourite part are her shooting videos. I love that she shot those videos herself while she was walking around the city, it gives us a first person view of things and I played a game every time she encountered a scene, I paused and thought for a second, what I would have seen in that scene and how I would have photographed it. Since she immediately reveals in her videos what the final image looked like, it was a great exercise for me to see how my approach was different from hers and what I missed. These might be some of my favourite shooting videos ever. All this to say, if you’re waiting to buy this course, I don’t know why you are waiting. Just buy it! An excellent course worth every single penny and more.

    1. Wow, thank you so much for the kind feedback, Saranya. I am so glad to hear you enjoyed the course and found it helpful. I got a good chuckle imagining you sitting there thinking about how you’d capture the same scenes from the photo walk videos differently. That’s exactly what I was hoping for: you held fast to your own style and used the course content to amplify your own voice. I’m so excited about what you’ll shoot next.
