September 29 – October 1, 2023
It’s been 4 years since the last Toronto workshop, time to revisit!
Spend 3 days exploring the best the city has to offer – interiors & exteriors, skyscrapers, sculptures, and much in between. The focus will be on creating detailed and abstract interpretations of the city’s built environment.
A few days before we meet in person, we’ll come together for an online presentation with tips on composition. Once the in-person portion wraps, I’ll share a post-processing tutorial with you. You’ll have a couple of weeks to work on your images and then we’ll meet up online once again for a review session of each participant’s work.
PRESENTATION: Tuesday, September 26, 8pm CT
REVIEW SESSION: Thursday, October 12, 8pm CT
These are just some of the locations we’ll see. A more detailed itinerary will be sent out a couple of weeks prior to us meeting in-person.
We’ll be walking A LOT (3-4 miles per day)! Please be prepared with good shoes, water, snacks and travel light!
Saturday and Sunday we will be inside museums – THEY DO NOT ALLOW BACKPACKS (unless you’re willing to check them or they’re small and you can wear them on the front of you, which is what I’d recommend).
I recommend a mid-range zoom around the 24-70mm range + a 70-200mm telephoto (the telephoto will be likely be your most used lens). If you’d like to bring an additional lens, a wide angle, 12-24mm range, may be useful in a couple of locations.
Tripods are not necessary, and I’d encourage you to leave them at home. Interior locations won’t allow them and we’ll be shooting during daylight hours for exteriors.
Novotel Toronto Centre, 45 The Esplanade, Toronto, ON M5E 1W2, Canada – THIS WILL BE OUR MEETING AND ENDING DESTINATION EACH DAY.
