About the training:
Spring is in the air and soon New York City neighborhoods will be hosting street festivals and block parties. Join award-winning photographer Adi Talwar in a free daylong exploration of the 9th Avenue International Food Festival on Saturday, May 19.

Street photography is a powerful way of capturing the many faces of life in New York City. Learn how best to photograph a community event and its participants with crisp and imaginative visuals that can drive traffic to your web and social media sites and make your print publications more attractive.

The full-day session will offer:

  • Street photography ethics – the dos and don’ts of outdoor photography
  • Tips for picking the theme, the subjects, the spots and the angles for your photos
  • Instructions and guidance during the photo walk
  • A critique of your work and production of a slideshow with a theme
  • Who can participate: Journalists from metro New York’s community and ethnic media who have cameras with manual controls (we will NOT be photographing with mobile phones) and the passion to improve their photography skills.

Only the first 10 registrants will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

For questions or more details, please write to ccem@journalism.cuny.edu.
