Event description

Description

In this workshop I will take you to some great spots in Coney Island to use as a background for your portraits.

I will teach you how to pick a background, how to choose camera angles and how to use a flash off camera. It's really very easy and creates a very professional result.

I will show you how to make your portraits look "surreal" , using off camera flash and high speed sync. I will give you a few tips for photoshop to help make the surreal even more surreal.

I will answer your questions about composition, lenses, manual versus automatic versus "P" on your camera.

We will start our expedition at Nathan's Famous in Coney Island. (they got some pretty good hot dogs there) where we will get aquainted.

Then we will visit the boardwalk, the parachute jump, and the Wonder Wheel.

I will show you some of my lighting techniques that I've spent years perfecting.

(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.)

The goal is for everyone to learn some new photo techniques and bring home an unusual and cool portrait of themselves or friend in the fantastic photo set called Coney Island.

I encourage you to bring a friend or family member to pose for your images.

We will end at Nathans where we will go over the images you created and I can give you some photoshop tips.

Nathan's Famous is at 1310 Surf Avenue, Brooklyn, New York

The D, F, N and Q lines all end at Stillwell Avenue, Coney Island. Nathans is just a short walk fro mthere.

You should have a camera with manual setting s and a flash. If you do not have a flash, let me know in adavance and I can rent one to you for the class for $15.
