It’s really funny how things happen. Last week I taught a seminar in Houston and posted about how I met up with some photographers the night before and photographed the city skyline. In fact, just about every time I visit a city, I try to take a memorable shot of the skyline. Some are from the typical places, like when I was in Seattle or even Boston. But some are from some not-so-typical places like:
• New York
Anyway, I showed the photo during the seminar and I received an overwhelming amount of questions on it. Then I realized something… I get a ton of questions about the skyline photos at any seminar where I do this. At that point it hit me (yeah, I’m slow). I SOOO need to do a class on this. It was on the cab ride to the airport after the Houston seminar and I couldn’t wait to get to the airport to start fleshing out the outline for the class (I get car-sick or I would have done it in the cab) 🙂
After making the outline I realized there’s a ton of little tips and tricks that I use in searching for the right location, to the right day to take the photo, to actually taking the photo, all the way to the post-processing. I even called Scott to make sure that it wasn’t just me that thought the idea was good, and he immediately said “Dude, you need to do that class”. So there ya’ have it… Photographing Cityscapes. A new class is born, and really, it’s inspired by all of you.
So… I’m in the planning stages of the class but I want to try to get on it pretty quickly. If you have any ideas, suggestions, or cool locations at cities in the US please let me know here in the comments section.
Thanks and have a good one!
