New York City USA
Setting the Scene
Have you ever felt like you were standing in the middle of a great picture but just not sure how to make it happen? In this two day workshop learn how artists build images from the ground up. Join artist and photographer Adam Marelli as he reveals the path to a successful image, one step at a time. You will explore the visual language in a way that is rarely taught to photographers. Through this careful study, you will be able to transform the streets into a photography playground that reflects your unique vision.
In conjunction with the Edward Hopper Drawing Exhibition at the Whitney Museum, we will focus on Hopper’s approach to New York City. After studying in Paris, Hopper called New York City home for almost five decades. His drawing expose how he built a scene from the components of architecture to people. If you ever wanted to know how he was able to construct so many icon images, this will be the workshop for you.
