|A good flea market
on a weekend is a place to find objects
of interest, including the unexpected
finds that you simply can't find
anywhere else. And it's a place to
people watch, to observe what shoppers
find appealing - and what they actually
buy, and to meet some of the sellers
that sit many hours with their
collections of everything.
In this class, we're going to spend a
morning at an Upper West Side flea
market and each participant will work on
their own photo essay to portray the
diverse aspects of the flea market
experience - as they see it.
As we walk
around, I'm going to provide challenges and
photo suggestions to insure that you produce a
series of images that captures some of the
feeling of the subject. I'll talk about
photographing strangers, making visual sense of
disorganized and random objects, the components
of a photo essay, and how you might present your
work for others to see. We'll also discuss
camera settings and lens choices that apply to
this type of environment.
The Sunday Flea Market Photo Class is one of a
series of NYC area classes that I teach. See the
entire schedule and sign up for
