***** Yummy walking photo tour
We barely managed to catch our breaths from our most recent Harlem photography walking tour, a truly eye-opening for both the point-and-shoot novice and the experienced photographer.
Leanne took us on a visual enlightening tour to some of the most interesting and exciting locations in Harlem, showing us different aspects and angles of Harlem which we never knew existed and never would have found on our own.
Leanne shared a lot of her knowledge, by explaining to us powerful street photography techniques, discussing ethics of street photography, approaching strangers for street portraits as well as dealing with difficult situations that might pop up.
We defined strategies for capturing the rich daily life of people on the street and selected spots with a lot of foot traffic with an interesting background and waited for people to come to us. The subjects entered our 'space '. In this way we felt much more comfortable photographing them.
All levels of photographic experience can benefit from Leanne's NYC walking photo tours, a great way of learning more about photography while enjoying the sights and sounds of Harlem.
We highly recommend this tour for anyone traveling to New York. - Luc, Patricia & Leonor, Cairo & Lisbon www.shootnewyorkcity.com
