Event Details

Urban photography is similar to street photography in that it takes place in an inner city environment but it differs from street photography in that it may or may not have people included in the image. Urban photos often take buildings, or rather the urban landscape itself as the main subject and if people are included in the picture is it is incidental. For this Workshop we will be hitting the Bronx,  Dawn’s neighborhood to be exact, to document many areas of industrial activity in the Southeast area of the Bronx.

In this Workshop we will cover:

• Urban architectural photography concepts

• Perspective distortion and how to avoid it - learn how tilt-shift lenses can give large-format features to DSLRs

• Pre-visualization

• Composition

• How to achieve a sense of depth in your images

• Natural lighting concepts

• Exposure bracketing

• and much more...

We will begin at Dawn’s home studio with a brief presentation on works in this genre before hitting the streets of this up and coming neighborhood.

 

Some highlights of the area will be:

• Overpasses;

• Train bridges;

• Working and abandoned warehouses;

• Refineries;

• Power plants

• and some landscape street art along the way!

Requirements: Bring your camera, a backpack or other comfortable way to carry your camera, and wear good, sturdy shoes – no open-toes shoes!

Optional: Tripod
