Day 2 of the Boston workshop started bright and early for sunrise at Fan Pier Park. We lucked out with another day of beautiful weather which made that early wake-up call completely worthwhile. Above is the image from that location. Just after this, we walked over to the Institute of Contemporary Art and photographed some abstracts of the pavilion, playing with the early light interacting with the structure.
After a break and some breakfast, we spent the rest of the day on the MIT campus. So much great stuff to shoot there, from brutalism to deconstructivism. First up, a little brutalist abstract.
Then some abstracts and shadow play at the MIT Media Lab.
Then, we spent quite a bit of time at the Frank Gehry designed Stata Center. His designs allow so many ways to create abstracts, both outside and inside. This particular building of his is a bit unique as it has a number of different colors and textures compared to his usual stainless steel.
We had a number of other stops on the MIT campus but I’ll end with some images of Alexander Calder’s sculpture La Grande Voile. To see more from the whole weekend you can stop by here.
We had a really great group for our workshop from all over the U.S., with a couple people who had also joined us in Toronto earlier this year. Seeing them again, and seeing how they’ve grown photographically over the last few months, is always fun. Following our weekend in Boston together, Michael and I shared our post-processing process in an online video conference. We also met up online in another session where each participant shared their favorite images from the weekend. This is one of my favorite parts of these workshops, so fun seeing each person’s vision and how it varies.
We have another workshop in Chicago later this month, which is sold-out, but we plan to announce the 2018 workshop schedule soon, so stay tuned!
