I'm teaching a new photo workshop series called Saturday at the Market: a photography workshop for food and film lovers and I would love to see you there! The workshop takes place at the bustling Union Square Greenmarket in New York City one Saturday a month. We'll capture the vibrant food scene, including local farmers, their produce, and market shoppers. You'll learn how to shoot film with your new Holga camera (included in the workshop fees). You'll also learn photography fundamentals (light, composition, framing, and exposure), visual storytelling techniques, and how to train your eye "to see" so that you can develop your "visual voice" and personal style.
Workshop participants receive a Holga (plastic film camera that renders artsy images) and 5 rolls of 120 film for your camera (a mix of black & white and color film). I'll have simple exercises for you during the workshop to help you develop your visual voice, improve your craft, and learn to shoot food culture in the streets. Plus, we'll have a rockin' good time: 6 hours of info/action packed photography instruction with a camera & film—all for 250. Monthly dates are scheduled through spring...
