Photography Workshop in New York USA

Date: 10th October - 14th October 2022

Length: 5 days

Price: 995.00

Exploring the streets of New York

Street Photography is often identified with New York and the great pioneers of the art photographing here in the 1960s and 1970s. New York is still today one of the best western cities to shoot street photography thanks to its diversity of people and places. The streets are packed everyday and every corner offers a new perspective and new moments to photograph. You will be constantly inspired but also overwhelmed. Join us in an immersive and intensive exploration of the streets and people of New York: we will guide you in focusing your inspiration and finding the best shots. We will help you take your photography to a new level. The group will be limited to 8 participants and will be led by both of us.

Itinerary

Each day we decide where to go, but will be visiting the following places:

  • Bronx
  • Soho
  • Greenwich Village
  • Coney Island
  • Chinatown
  • East Village

What does a workshop look like?

We generally start early in the morning and stay out as long as participants like, then review our images each evening in a group session.

On the first day there will be an introductory briefing about the week ahead, highlighting what we will be looking for and where we will be going each day. We will also give a small presentation on street photography and techniques we can use to produce an interesting portfolio. We will talk about moments, layering, light, working the shot, background selection and more.

Optionally, Flavio can do a morning refresher session on camera settings and controls for street photography on the first day and an evening session on editing and post processing  for street photography.

This workshop is street and travel photography based, with an encouragement to shoot un-posed images containing people in a context that shows the viewer an image that tells a story. Whilst we do take street portraits, this is not the focus of the workshop, but it is fine when kept in context.

We will be with you every step of the way, from when we meet in the morning through to critique and dinner in the evening. We will split in rotating groups of two throughout the day so we will have a chance to shoot with each of the participants but also you will have the opportunity to have some quality 1-2-1 time with us.

What photographic experience do you need?

These workshops are geared towards photographers with at least a basic understanding of the exposure triangle and having familiarity with the camera controls. Although technical advice will be given we won’t be able to concentrate on grasping the basics.

What gear will be needed?

We normally shoot light with one camera body and a single prime lens. Any camera model/make will be fine, but we encourage the use of a prime lens of choice among 28mm, 35mm or 50mm in full frame terms (that would be around 18mm, 23mm and 35mm in APS-C terms). If you feel more comfortable shooting with a zoom it’s fine.

A laptop with a post-processing program installed, Lightroom or similar. We strongly advise also installing PhotoMechanic for the initial editing: it will save a lot of time. They offer a free 30 day trial, so we suggest installing it just before the workshop date and learning the very basics to be ready for the workshop.

No flash, tripods, long and telephoto lenses will be needed: travel light and you will enjoy the day much more.
