In this gear-centric workshop, students will learn how to get great shots in less than ideal lighting situations. Led by low-light mastermind and gear head Gabe Biderman of B&H, learn how to make the most of your equipment and how to assess and approach difficult lighting situations and get great shots without shooting in the dark.
This is a BYOC (bring-your-own-camera) workshop that will meet for a brief intro and slideshow session at the United Photo Industries Gallery 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.
Gabriel Biderman is a travel and self-taught fine art photographer, who has been exploring the night topography for over 20 years. Gabe loves the “process” of creating the image and pushing the limits to what we can do when we capture time for seconds, minutes, or even hours! He is well versed in both film and digital, and enjoys blending the surreal look of the night to enhance historic and urban landscapes. Gabriel’s work has been exhibited in New York, London, San Francisco, and Hawaii and he is the author (with Tim Cooper) of the recently released book Night Photography – From Snapshots to Great Shots.
