Natan Dvir, photographer
This two-day workshop (July 12 and 19) uses the exhibition Garry Winogrand as a catalyst for exploring techniques for photographing scenes and portraits "on the street." During the first day, participants learn about the history of street photography as well as technical guidelines and tips. After discussing different approaches to photographing people, we'll venture outside the Museum and start practicing through hands-on guided assignments. The second session focuses on reviewing and critiquing everyone's photographs, exploring examples of different personal styles, and visiting the exhibition to look closely at Winogrand's work.
Participants are encouraged to bring personal digital cameras; a limited quantity of camera devices will be available for borrowing upon request.
This workshop meets in the Met's galleries and studios. Participants must be 18 or older. Space is limited. Purchase tickets below or at the Great Hall box office. Registration ends at noon on the Tuesday before the first day of the course.
