HOW ABOUT PHOTOJOURNALISM?
Photographing New York City in black and white can create a classic and timeless look that showcases the city's architecture, streets, and people in a unique way.
There is a plethora of the ideas and themes we will be using for photographing New York City. From its people and its architecture to the stories from the streets, the city with it's timeless
theme is ideal for unique and memorable black and white photography.
We will be taking the city by foot. Walking amongst the citizens, feeling their energy and seeing the sights from their point of view will show us what it’s like to live and experience the Big Apple.

BLACK & WHITE in NYC
SO MUCH TO SEE
Manhattan has some of the world's most recognizable buildings, such as the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, and the Flatiron Building plus many other architectural wonders. You can photograph these buildings from different angles, using different compositions and lighting to create dramatic and striking images.
STORIES of the STREET
The streets of NYC are bustling with activity, and we suggest BW to capture that energy. Using a photojournalistic style for people on the streets captures candid moments and tells tales of these individual’s lives at those moments in time. BW imagery also showcases the diversity and vibrancy of the city and its peoples.
BRIDGES & THE WATERFRONT
Manhattan is surrounded by water, with bridges connecting it to other boroughs and cities. You can photograph the iconic Brooklyn Bridge or the lesser-known Manhattan Bridge in BW, creating dramatic images of the city's infrastructure.
Central Park is an oasis in the middle of Manhattan, with beautiful landscapes, ponds, and bridges. You can capture the park's beauty with BW creating moody and atmospheric images that convey the park's tranquility. We will also capture the stories of its people as they walk, run, and relax in Central Park.
Manhattan's skyline is stunning at night. Capturing it in BW allows for the city’s stories to be revealed before our lenses. We’ll photograph the city from a high vantage point, such as a rooftop or a bridge, using long exposure times to capture the light trails of cars, the blur of constantly moving citizens and the city's energy.

WHAT TO BRING
IN THE CLASSROOM
This is a hands-on opportunity so bring your computer! I have discovered that offering critique sessions during a Road Trip greatly increases your growth. Being able to shoot, critique, adjust and understand during a workshop is a very
efficient and rewarding way to learn.
I will offer a Zoom session a couple of weeks following the Road Trip. This is an ideal situation because we are all comfortable at home with our familiar computer setups. We will take a look at
your imagery and I can offer critiques and other helpful and positive feedback. Then I will
offer my step-by-step process of howI
interpret and enhance my imagery.
For your investment you will have the opportunity to photograph some extremely unique and buildings and cityscapes. This is a great opportunity to push and expand your artistic abilities. All expenses are covered except your airfare, souvenirs and alcoholic beverages.
