Presented by: NYC Digital Photography Workshops

Hosted by: Adorama

The key to a great image is for an image to tell a story. Breaking away from conventional formatting, this workshop will draw upon video segments and historical examples from world renowned artists, as well as personal experience to illustrate just how this is done. It will not be a pragmatic how-to, but more of a conversation encouraging a new framework to think about subjects you're shooting, and organizing your images.

This session will showcase clips featuring Martin Parr, Paul Graham, Garry Winogrand and others; and will offer a variety of ideas on how photography can be used to construct perspectives on your subject. Come with your ideas and be prepared to participate in a conversation!
