Event Details


You kind of know your way around your camera menu and you feel comfortable shooting in aperture-priority or shutter-priority modes or even manual, but you ask yourself "What's next, what now?". Have you ever thought about not only taking technically but also visually appealing images? Did you ever hear about the "Rule of Thirds", but then you really haven't applied it to your photograpy yet?

Then, this workshop is perfect for you! As a class of my advanced series, we will go through the concept of composition, discuss and apply the "Rule of Thirds" and talk about other compositional tools and guidelines. After the workshop, your images will draw the viewer's attention because there is "something" in the picture that most people feel, but cannot describe. You will know how to evoke that feeling.

As a prerequiste for this advanced workshop, you will need a basic understanding of your camera and its settings. We can go briefly over some camera specifics, but this will only be for a short warm-up period before moving into the compositional excercises. If you would like to particate in this workshop, but you don't have the basic understanding of your camera and digital photography yet, I recommend that you take my "Digital Photography 101" workshop before taking this workshop.

For this workshop, we are going to meet at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden (Eastern Parkway Entrance, Subway station "Eastern Parkway / Brooklyn Museum", 2/3 trains) which gives us plenty of opportunities to sharpen our sense for composition and visual awareness. Depending on the weather conditions, we will mainly spent our time around the Japanese Garden and the Steinhard Conservatory.

Entrance to the Botanical Garden is FREE at this time and you are welcome stay as long as you want after our workshop until the park closes at 6pm!

More information on my private and group workshops can be found on my website

Hello, I am Heidger, a self-taught photographer who is fascinated by the world’s beauty that manifests in the diversity of different cultures and nature. Before becoming a professional night, nature and travel photographer in 2010, I worked in the corporate world in Germany and the United States for many years. I moved to the US in 2001 and have been living in New York City since 2003.

My images have been exhibited in various galleries over New York City and are part of private collections in North America and Europe. In addition to creating images, I write a blog on night photography, including thoughts while traveling and being out in natureI am also available for commissioned work, portrait and event photography.

After teaching private one-on-one photography workshops for several years, I have recently extended my offering to public group workshops. These workshops will be focused on topics ranging from introductory classes on digital photography over street, nature and landscape photography to specialized classes on portrait and night photography. All workshops last two hours and will be held at various interesting locations all over New York City that are completely safe. I only take 6 students per class in order to make your learning experience as beneficial as possible.

Please sign-up for a free membership to my workshop group at: http://www.meetup.com/New-York-Photo-Workshops/ By signing up, you will receive notifications of new workshop dates, topics and locations that I constantly add and a link to RSVP for that workshop.

Hope to see you at one of my workshops!
