Bruce Gilden brings to the workshop his unique style of street photography which has truly become his own over the past 25 years of working in New York City and other urban areas, both in the US and abroad. He will work with the students to teach them how to improve their pictures shot in the streets by best identifying their working style for street photography, and aiding them in gaining street smart sensibilities necessary to working in any environment- that ability to be in the middle of the scenario, but be unobtrusive. GILDEN will review students portfolios, followed by reviewing their recently-completed assignment and film shot during workshop. GILDEN will spend one session with the students working in the street. This will include technical discussions and demonstrations of working with electronic flash in combination with available light. GiLDEN will also give presentation on his 25 year body of street work in CD form.
