Enjoy some photographs from our workshop at Bushkill Falls, PA on October 23rd.  One of the main focuses of the day was learning how to gauge shutter speed in order to either show the flow of the water or to freeze the movement to show its amazing force.  We did this by way of using neutral density filters to block the huge amount of light from the gorgeous sunny day we had.  Additionally, concepts of composition and exposure technique were discussed just as they are at all Kaz Arts workshops.

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:

Awhile back, John-Paul Palescandolo, one of this site’s contributors went on a tour of some abandoned subway sections of New York City.  Becoming a member of New York Transit Museum is a great opportunity for those who have further interest in this area of history.

John-Paul ended up with a wonderful original capture of the main archway of the Old City Hall station stop, with all of the vibrantly-colored tilework, except for one problem – there was a wooden ramp in view, something that he had no control over.  Well, he did what any good photographer would do, which is try to get the best possible shot anyway.

Difficult lighting situation here – Canon EOS 5D using the Canon 24/1.4L @ ISO 400.  Image was captured hand-held at about 1/15 sec.
After the RAW processing, we come away with an image that is technically quite good.  Here you are:
