New York City from Above

We are currently swooning over these stunning aerial shots of New York City intersections by Navid Baraty. As we’ve written before, sometimes the best shots are taken from unlikely angles, and this photo series serves as a perfect example. Have a look at the full portfolio of NYC shots from above here.

PS: Speaking of New York City, if you’d like to try your hand at taking exciting shots of the Big Apple like this, we’re giving away two free places in the World Photography Events New York “City Projects” workshop!

A Summer Flower Photography Workshop
By Barbara Bordnick

Come join Barbara Bordnick for an extraordinary weekend workshop on photographing flowers in her Manhattan studio, located in the historic Photo/Flat Iron District of Manhattan. She is the author of three innovative, best-selling books of photographs of flowers:  SEARCHINGS:  Secret Landscapes of Flowers Volumes I, II & III.

Ms. Bordnick is a renowned fashion, portrait, nude and floral photographer who has taught workshops all over  the world. Due to the popularity of her weekend workshop in flower photography, she has added another: June 26 & 27, 2010

To keep each workshop as intimate and hands-on as possible, only six students per workshop will be admitted. Along with demonstrations of lighting and set-up techniques for shooting flowers in the studio, the workshops begin with a trip to the New York City wholesale flower market to choose flowers. Each student will go home with a gorgeous, archival pigment print of her/his own work.

“It was more than I could have ever imagined—an experience of a lifetime. Thank you for your warm hospitality and your willingness to share some of the Bordnick tricks of the trade.” – P.M., Sacramento, CA

“I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed being with you in your studio in New York. I came home inspired and encouraged. I wish we could all come back one weekend a month.”  – D.W., Dallas, TX

“The real challenge was to develop our vision, hear what each flower is saying, and translate that into our photographs.” – E.S., Cachoeiro, Brazil

The cost of each workshop is $950.00.  *To hold a reservation e-mail info@searchings.us and send a $450.00 deposit.

For out-of-town participants, the elegant W Hotel has agreed to make rooms available for a special discount price of $229.00 per night.

Although I have known photographer Harvey Stein since 2000, when we were introduced at Fotofest in Houston, Texas, for a long while I hadn’t had an opportunity to talk to him about the many facets of his photography.

“In the flower genre – which has become a predictable cliché – Barbara has invented a new visual experience.  Rather than merely being dazzled by their beauty, she has entered into each flower  and takes us on a journey of erotic discovery in this new sensual landscape.” – Duane Michals

Due to the popularity of her weekend workshop in flower photography, she has added another: April 24 & 25, 2010.
