Join me in October…

This year I will be hosting the Leica Akademie Workshop with Justin Stailey in October.  I have really enjoyed these workshops with Justin and its great to meet a likeminded group of photographers for an exciting holiday in NYC.  And for anyone interested in trying out some new Leica equipment there will be plenty of lenses and camera bodies on hand for you to use.  Before you ask, I don’t know if there will be Monochrom’s or M10′s yet.

Here is the Leica release with details on the workshop.

Wednesday October 31st – Thursday November 1st (10:00-5:00 pm)

Leica Akademie (NYC)

Leica M cameras have been synonymous with classic street photography ever since the first Leica M was brought forth in 1954. This program distills the essence of this distinguished heritage, providing inspiration to experienced M photographers, and a solid introduction to the history and techniques that helped establish the esteemed photographic genre that has witnessed and defined our world. The two-day (10AM to 5PM) course provides both morning and afternoon shooting sessions, and topics will include a comprehensive discussion on techniques and tips for shooting effective street images, selecting the right equipment, understanding the hyper-focal distance scale, shooting from the hip, and more. The program will also include a rough edit and review of the pictures taken, and conclude on the final evening with an entertaining, thought-provoking slide show of the images shot during the two days.

The timing of this workshop will offer you the unique opportunity to explore New York city on Halloween with Leica Camera’s Justin Stailey and featured photographer, Adam Marelli.

Topics covered include:

  • A short history of the street photographer
  • Street technique
  • Hyper focus
  • Scale/Zone focus
  • Focusing
  • Point of departure
  • Hunting
  • Waiting
  • Watching

 

Who should attend this Workshop?

This workshop will be useful to experienced or up-and-coming street photographers alike. If you have ever been curious as to what it takes to make great pictures in the street and want to explore these techniques and get feedback on your photography, than this is the program for you. We will use the Leica M9 and X2 cameras during the workshop, but knowledge of or experience with rangefinders is not required to attend.

 Photographers should bring laptops and be conversant with their hardware and software in order to facilitate downloading and review of photos made during the workshop.
And if you would like to see the before and after effects of a workshop with me check out this Case Study 001: Cyrus Katrak.  He took my Halloween workshop last year.

Stay Tuned

The last few days have been super busy but coming up I will have:

Fifth Avenue and 44th Street. Bernice Abbot at the Museum of the City of New York.

1)  A review of the London Street Photography show at the Museum of the City of New York.  I want to thank readers Michael Cinelli and David Geffin for requesting the review.

Two Birds by M C Escher. We will look at the connection between M C Escher’s designs and the work of Alex Webb.

2)  Another part of the Great Compositions Series with M. C. Escher and Alex Webb.
3)  A side by side comparison of Henrì Cartier-Bresson (whose birthday I missed yesterday August 22nd, Happy Birthday Henrì) and Bruno Barbey.
4)  Lastly, I am happy to announce that I now have an editor working with me on the website.  Over the next few months we will be cleaning up the typos, misspellings, and grammatical slip ups on the site.  Please be patient, this one will take a while.

Best,

Adam Marelli

  1. Adam, thanks for the thanks, you’re very welcome – really looking forward to your review and all the stuff you mentioned and have lined up.

    I’m going to try and get down to the Museum on the 10th and check it out – Bruce Gilden is there doing a talk i believe, which should be interesting!
