BONUS! All participants will receive a gift card worth $25 towards prints and other photo products at Nations Photo Lab
For more than two centuries, the best architects, engineers, and designers in the world have competed to have their work represented in Midtown Manhattan. But there’s so much to photograph, where do you begin?
No problem! Popular photo tour guide and Midtown maven Steve Rosenbach will share his experience with you by taking you to the best photo locations and showing you some of the best picture opportunities in Midtown.
On this 3-hour photo workshop, we'll visit and photographically explore an inspiring collection of some of Manhattan's most iconic architectural sites. Our itinerary includes a range of styles by some of the world’s most famous and revered architects.
Besides helping you with composition, shooting angles, and picking out compelling details, Steve will explain the style and significance of each location and tell you some memorable stories about selected buildings.
This workshop is for all skill levels, and I’m limiting the number of people who can attend, so that I can spend time with each of you to help with anything you need in getting really compelling images of the sites that we visit along the way. That can range from basic photo or camera help to assistance with composition and advanced techniques.
Among other places, we'll visit the following:
James Renwick's St. Patrick Cathedral
Grand Central Terminal, a Beaux-Arts masterpiece
Two amazing Romanesque Revival buildings
Three iconic Art Deco skyscrapers
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's pioneering Seagrams Building
By the time you complete this photo workshop, you should have a nice collection of great Midtown architectural photos as well as a some new insight into the history of our favorite city.
Also, as an added value, you'll be able to send me your photos (or links to them) from this workshop for evaluation and feedback. I'll make comments and suggestions, and in many cases, do some photo editing on your photos to demonstrate how to make a good image even better.
