Saturday March 21: today was an amazing day with a bunch of amazing musicians and photographers coming together in Midtown, NYC for a Concert Photography Workshop. Along with my good friend and colleague, and fellow photographer Fredda Gordon (http://freddaphotography.com/), we launched InFocusVisions.com where we are teaching photo workshops and photo tours. As one of the students said yesterday, "this is one of the best workshops I have ever taken. Not only are we hearing great music, but we are REALLY learning how to photograph them. This is great-we aren't just sitting there taking notes but actually shooting." Another student said "Great class!! Deb and Fredda taught us so much yesterday. Meet some great people. The live music was GREAT!! Thanks ladies!!" "Had a great time."
While listening to the great music of Dick Pape and Becca Atkins of GypsyTimeSurf (https://www.facebook.com/GypsyTimeSurf)
Jon Christopher Allen (http://jonchristopherallen.com)
Bobby Mahoney (http://bobbymahoneymusic.com)...the students got to experience what it wold REALLY be like photographing musicians in a club setting, theater, or stadium. They were given the obstacles of learning how to react fast and change the settings on their camera when the light suddenly changes all while shooting manual, having other photographers or fans get in their way, and what to do when a musician "eats" the microphone and won't move away and many other "real life" concert situations.
Here is just a small sampling of what the students shot.
We have many other workshops coming up as well as a Central Park at night photo shoot on Friday March 27. For this and all our other workshops, be sure to book mark www.InFocusVisions.com and check back ofter.
