Here is a preview for those attending the Eastern State Penitentiary Workshop in Philadelphia next weekend on November 6th.  I wanted to post these so you can get an idea for the look and feel of the place and begin to brainstorm some ideas and compositions.  As always, there will be specialty lenses available for use throughout the day.  Don’t be shy!  Enjoy the photos and let me know if you have any questions.

Wow, it’s been a great and busy Fall workshop season for Kaz Arts Photography.  Gleason’s Gym & Historic Brooklyn, The Cloisters, Bushkill Falls & finally Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia coming up on November 6.
Everyone has been having a lovely time on the trips, learning a lot and producing some fantastic results.

Last week, we ran two workshops to the Cloisters Museum in Manhattan.  The museum is a replica of a medieval French cloister and houses a vast collection of medieval art and architecture.  Almost all of the stone walls, pillars and doors  have actually been brought over from former monasteries and cloisters in Europe, particularly France.  Why come to The Cloisters for a photography workshop?  Because it is a great study in understanding light and composition.   Those are the nuts and bolts of photography, right?  The way the light pours into the windows and the way shadows are cast on both sculptures and architectural designs can be breathtaking.

Please enjoy the work of some of last week’s participants below:

Kerry’s dream was to have her bridal portraits done while riding horseback on  a Friesian.  Well, we made it happen.  One of our clients knows a number of horse breeders in Hunterdon county, and we made a connection.  The horse you see here is named Fjoory, originally from Holland.  We’ve developed a nice relationship with the breeder, so hopefully we will be able to do photo workshops with horse and model sometime very soon.  Enjoy the photos!

This month we are featuring the work of Dick Edwards, a client of mine from Northern New Jersey

The city [Venice] is divided into six Siestrie (or districts); three on the north side of the Grand Canal, San Marco, Cannaregio, and Castello and three to the south, Santa Croce, San Palo and Dorsoduro. Additionally, the long narrow island of Guidecca lies across the Guidecca Canal, south of Dorsorado, and serves as home to working-class Venetians.

Mention “Venice” to the once-time visitor and most likely you will invoke memories of the “sights” of San Marco (the Bascilica, Dodges Palace, Piazza bearing the same name, and the north embankment of the Rialto Bridge).

It is in the “other” five siestrie, however, in the campi (there is only one piazza in Venice, San Marco, the other squares carry the designation “campo”), and along the calles, fondamentas, terras, that are found the images of light and darkness, permanence and decay, and above all, the interplay of brick, stone and water that comprise the magic of Venice. And it is these images that provoke the frequent traveler to Venice to ponder his next return.   ~ Dick Edwards
