How do you understand an organism as complex as a human being? Human habits, their preferences, the intellectual luggage that they carry, are sometimes hidden deep in their actions. A human being is the most dynamic thing you can take a picture of. Humans are complex, beautiful, and ever changing.
Can a single photograph tell a story of humanity or at least open up a dialogue? Can the process of making these pictures open up you?
Join two award winning local photographers on their journey to complete their street photography project in Syracuse. See their photographic process and learn their tips for interacting with people and spaces.
WHO: A small group of 4 people with mobile phones up to DSLR’s. Discrete is best, smaller gear is favored in this genre. We prefer a small camera with a single lens, like a 35mm or a 50mm.
WHAT: Start out at a local coffee shop and walk the city looking for light and moments of humans interacting with the city they call home.
HOW: We will start with a cup of local coffee and a discussion about gear, tips, and the challenges of working the streets in Syracuse. Then we will head out on an active workshop. Plan to walk and shoot images for a few hours. During this time you can see how we work, and also see our work on display down in Clinton Square thanks to the community foundation grant.
WHERE: We will start at Cafe Kubal across from the iconic Niagara mohawk building. The views inside are incredible. 324 W Water Street , Syracuse NY 13202
