Manhattan, home for some
of the greatest modern architectures in the world, is as well, and
surprisingly, a place cosier than what you think. The legendary
Greenwich village, the full of life east village, the fashionable
Tribeca, the historic Harlem, the smart Chelsea, the cultural Soho,
Manhattan is more than skyscrapers.
The neighborhoods are well drawn, with each of them a distinctive flavor, a specific style. Many markets, many small streets with bursts of life to capture with your camera. This workshop will show you these varied personalities, and how to get their atmospheres in the frame of your photos.
This workshop is a handmade
product. Please, before any kind of bank transfer (if you think
already about it, thank you, ladies and gentlemen), send me your
dates, to know the schedules available. Use as well the form below
for any informations you need.
The workshop starts on each sunday (day of arrival in NYC) of September, October and November 2012 (for a further date, please let me know).
The places are very limited, so book quickly
This schedule is just an idea for how the days are
Notice that if everyone wants to add something else, it will be done. I'm not here to subjugate you in rigid rails. We will start daily with a meeting about the walk of the day, about the visited neighborhoods, about the focus on 2-3 main buildings to be gone into more deeply. We will also discuss the choice of the lenses and the possible approaches of the subjects.
The afternoons will be lighter, with a short walk around some interesting landmarks, then you will have some spare time, for you to discover some personal subjects of interests or simply to play tourists.
It's a four seats Robinson R44, with only two photographers at the
same time (both left side for no blind spots). The doors are
removed to enhance the quality of the shooting. We will speak with
the pilot to determine the flight plan to follow.
The flight is subject to re-schedule according to the weather and authorizations (impossible when the US President is in town for example).
I don't include here the first and last days, the arrival one usually being used for reassembling, resting and working together on the program, while the departure day is generally devoted to shopping and souvenirs.
