Discuss this workshop
For photographers, the best camera is the one they just used and the one they want to buy next. The same goes for photographers that like to travel: the best country to visit and photograph is the one you just visited and the one you want to go to next. But we tend to overlook where we are at the moment: home.
When photographers travel to a new place outside of their â€˜safety zone' they are immersed in a sensory overload from their surroundings. Everything is a ripe photo opportunity. Learn how to harness that overzealous ambition and create stunning images abroad and at home.
This workshop, taught by Nikonians faculty member Michael A. Mariant, who is the consultant and coordinator for travel and multi-media photography for the Semester at Sea study-abroad program, takes an exhaustive look at refining the approach to travel, documentary and street photography. You will examine the myths that run rampant in travel photography, analyze the mindset of photographers in a foreign place and learn how to apply that mindest to the familiar. Every person you see, from Helsinki to your hometown, has a story. Learn to tap into that story.
