The course starts on Friday night with an introduction and portfolio review. Saturday will be spent shooting in the morning and afternoon, with an evening critique session back at the Leica Store DC. Sunday resumes with more shooting in the morning, and a final afternoon session of editing, review and feedback at the Leica Store DC.
Topics covered include:

- Photographing people in public
