Yesterday was the annual Thanksgiving Day Fox Hunt of the Essex Fox Hounds Club and was held on the Ellistan Estate in Peapack-Gladstone, New Jersey.  We have been attending this event for the past few years in order to photograph the riders, horses and hounds.  It’s a charming way to begin your Thanksgiving morning.  A gentle snow fell in the morning right before the hounds took off in pursuit of their prey and this made for some very dramatic images.  Enjoy a handful of our photos posted below and please follow this link to the NJ.com / Star Ledger Article to read more about this event.

The photograph seen below which was used in a feature article on this blog a few months ago, ‘Abandoned City Hall Station‘ has been, among other images taken by John-Paul Palescandolo and myself, used in a Yahoo News Story. Additionally, the Huffington Post has run a similar article where we supplied additional photos to help expand the breadth of the viewer experience.

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:
