Sometimes my street photography and my abstract photography merge. Sometimes it is a fine line between the two genres. If you are interested in exploring some of the methods that you can use to create abstract street photography, I am co-hosting a workshop with Linda Hacker on 16 July. Half of the 10 spaces are already taken. You can find out more info about it and register online.

Light and shadows are one of those things that draw the photographer’s eye to capture and also have a way of drawing in the eye of the viewer. The eye will naturally follow those things that stand out. Work Permit, March 2018.
It’s great when a photo can illustrate the weather and make you forget that it’s cold outside. The daylight hours are longer now and the promise of warmer weather is near. I prefer shooting with available light and so I’m happy to have more shooting hours! This photo was taken during a street photography workshop.
I have many favorite neighborhoods in New York City. Harlem is one of them. I provide private photo workshops in Harlem on a regular basis. It is always fun. The people are amazing and friendly. Check out my site for more information.
If I had liked art classes when I was younger, I may very well have become a painter. But instead I became a photographer. I feel that the environment that I shoot in is my palette. And with street photography it is the element of chance that brings people into my frame. So often my street photos feel like a painting to me. You can see more of my street photography in my galleries.
I like to use the background as well as the foreground when shooting street photography. It is especially possible when you are standing in one place and wait for a person to walk into the frame. Certainly patience is helpful. But maybe it doesn’t really take all that long and the results are worth it. Check out my upcoming workshops. You can register online.
