In this interactive workshop, participants will venture out into the world with experienced sports and action photographers to learn how to capture classic moments and get great shots of constantly moving subjects. Led by Getty Images Staff photographer Elsa Garrison and ESPN Senior Photo Editor Julianne Varacchi, students will have an opportunity to not only shoot live and on location, but to gain feedback and advice from successful photographers and editors working in the wide world of sports.
This is a BYOC (bring-your-own-camera) workshop that will meet for a brief intro and slideshow session in the Photoville Workshop Area before heading out to the sports fields and courts of Brooklyn Bridge Park. The workshop also includes an optional wrap-up session and casual group critique, where students can share the work they shot and get feedback from instructors and workshop peers.
