2-Day Street Photography & City Nightscape Workshop in New York City!

ONLY 2 SPOTS LEFT!! ***** To secure your spot in this workshop please click on link below which will take you to registration page. This is merely a posting of the event. ***** ***YOU CAN ONLY SIGN UP FOR THIS EVENT BY GOING TO...**** http://www.52magicmondays.com/workshops Megan Crandlemire, 52 Magic Monday’s creator, and Mike Boening, Olympus Visionary are excited to announce their 2 day Street Photography Workshop in New York City on June 1 and 2, 2019. We chose to keep this workshop very unique and personal by opening it up to only 4 participants. You will receive plenty of one-on-one instruction and support from Megan and Mike. We will be able to navigate and move around the city much more effectively as a small group which will, in turn, let you capture more of what makes New York City a spectacular street shooting environment! The home base area of the workshop will be downtown near the World Trade Center area. You can expect to walk 10-12 miles over the two day period, moving at a steady pace. Being a small and nimble group will help us achieve this pace to capture more of the city. You will leave the workshop with: • hundreds of amazing photographs • your own, personal “new view” of the streets of New York • a refreshed & confident approach to street and architecture/city photography, day and night • inspiration as you explore what street photography means to you and discover what really lights you up • the camaraderie of new friends in photography and life As always, workshops provide so much more than just how to capture images. They provide you time to devote solely to your passion. When this is accomplished you realize the potential of your creativity! Our supportive group environment will further magnify your originality. Another special feature of the workshop is our two online gatherings taking place before and after the workshop! See details below. ________________________________________ Pre Workshop Online Meet & Greet: • About a week before the workshop, we will gather at an online Google hangout for a 30-45 minute meet and greet. Mike & Megan will discuss best practices for street shooting and what to expect during the workshop. We willl go over do’s and don’t, fears, and general styles to the art of street work. We will end with a short Q & A. Session will be recorded. Itinerary can be found on the website here: http://www.52magicmondays.com/workshops Post Workshop Online Review: • About 10 days after the workshop, we will gather on a Google hangout for 60 minutes to chat about the workshop and review images. This online event is one of the most important pieces of the workshop, as it will give you the chance to show us what you saw compared to others. We are always amazed at the different ways we see things even though we are all looking at the same area. We will kick back in this session and really discuss your selected 7 images with everyone on the video call. It’s a no judgment zone and you will find this to be the best way to keep that workshop magic going after we have left New York. Session will be recorded. What's Included: • Pre Workshop Online Meet & Greet • Two days of fabulous shooting and exploring in New York City! • Post Workshop Online Group Discussion & Review What's Not Included: Hotel, meals, subway and transportation fees are not included in the workshop fee. Mike & Megan will provide suggestions for hotels, but you are free to stay anywhere in NYC. We will be starting at 7am both days near the World Trade Center area so please book your accommodations accordingly. We suggest you stay over Friday night before the workshop begins.
