DIA Photo Walk - Regular Member Event Page

Join us for a photowalk though the amazing Detroit Institute of Arts.


There is the Van Gogh on loan

And of course:

Motor CIty Muse; Detroit Photographs, Then and Now

"For more than 70 years, photographers have found inspiration for their work from the people, city streets, and automobile culture of Detroit. This exhibition includes select photographers who, through their personal vision and photographic skill, have captured subjects, past and present, specific to Detroit, its changing landscape, architecture and auto industry. Included are more than 100 photographs by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Frank, Dave Jordano, Karin Jobst, Detroiters Nicola Kuperus, Russ Marshall and Bill Rauhauser, along with select members of the Detroit School of Automotive Photography. This exhibition has been organized by the Detroit Institute of Arts."

    Best bring your very steady hand and select the fastest lens you have, the art exhibits in general are not lit with any amount of overwhelming light so capturing quality images with no flash is certainly a challenge. As the rules state, to picture of special exhibits, which I am sure Van Gogh would be on that list. I have also taken my camera (D800 /[masked]) there many times without issue, I would be looking at using a prime lens so you can utilize a larger aperture.

    Thanks for checking into it. I had heard that they just don't like people slogging bags of camera stuff around. So I think you just pick a lens and go with it.....unless they have instituted the "all photos must be taken with the lens caps ON" rule. Looking forward to seeing all again.
