Event description

Description

One of the most fun neighborhoods in New York City , Dumbo, is in Brooklyn, and it's just a casual walk over the Brooklyn Bridge.

It is one of the best vantage points to create images with the Manhattan skyline as a backdrop.

In our two hour workshop, we will cover the area from the Brooklyn Bridge Park to Jane's Carousel.

Participants are encouraged to bring a friend along to model for them.

They can pose for you on the rocks in Brooklyn Bridge Park or the promenade by the carousel!

Or you may pose for other photographers.

The goal is to create a few beautiful and unique images utilizing one of the most recognized backdrops in the world.

I want you to go home with an unusual and unforgettable image of yourself or your friend in this magnificent setting.

We will cover composition, choice of backgrounds and camera angles

I will show you some of my lighting techniques that I've spent years perfecting, including use of high speed flash synchronization to soften the backgrounds.

And, I will show you how to synchronize your off-camera flash so you can make amazing pictures

of your very own!

(Don't worry if you've never used an off-camera flash before. It is easy to learn, very cool - professional photographers use it almost all the time - and, it nearly always improves the look of images.)

This workshop is for all levels of photographers, but especially designed for those who want to use some cool lighting techniques to create portraits of friends that are very different and unusual from the traditional tourist photo.

Please get in touch with any questions.

Manual cameras are necessary, and flashes are recommended.
