Event description

Description

In this workshop we will go on a photo expedition where i will show you some great spots in Dumbo to use as a background for your portraits.

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

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

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

Or you can pose for other photographers.

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.

(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.)

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.

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

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 set where movies are photographed constantly.

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.

After the shoot we will have a review and I will tell you some photoshop hints to make your images even more surreal.

Please get in touch with any questions.

Manual cameras are necessary, and flashes are recommended.
